The Retreat at Blue Lagoon
The design strategy was to confer upon guests a unique luxurious experience, offering a soothing and reassuring atmosphere in harmony with nature, human biology and architecture. A subtle lighting scheme was employed, achieving a delicate choreography. Preserving the overall quality of light was important to establish seamless connection, allowing for a cohesive experience, thus creating sublime, experiential spaces where lighting and architecture is conceived as one and the same.
Statement of the jury
The design is convincing right down to the last detail and enables rest and relaxation at an exclusive level. Natural materials such as wood and stone combine with clear architecture and simple shapes to convey a sense of calm and concentration. The design also has an excellent approach to light, which becomes an integral part of the architecture here.
