This beautiful and unique hotel design is the winning proposal project by Buenos Aires and Berlin-based architecture studio Jasper Architects. Named Dunas, the project twists in the sandy dunes of Kuwait featuring a flower-shaped roof with large holes that allow trees to pass through them. The architects take cues from the natural sandy landscape and the soft wavy geometries, shapes, textures, and mild colors of the dunes. The 554-600 square meters project accommodates spas, swimming pools and private suites. Check out more detail about this futuristic project below at SURFACES REPORTER (SR):

Sprawled over a total area of 19,866 sqm, the project is just like an immersive oasis that offers the hotel visitors and guests outstanding views across the surrounding deserts.
A Circular Roof
The circular roof of the project folds down in a radial array, creating several luxurious private suites attached with spa salons, common living areas and spa salons. Each private suite will provide guests with breathtaking views of the sand and allow them to connect directly with the desert.
The smooth touchpoints of the roof between each suit allow access to the terrace through moulded stairs, creating yet another wonderful experience for guests.
Further, to enhance visible connections, the roof is covered with the perforated concrete sheet that allows for direct visual connection from the inside to the desert’s clear sky.
The building is constructed with various hues, textures, colours, and shapes that almost conceal within the golden hills.
If we talk about construction, the architects used pigmented shotcrete- a type of concrete applied onto a surface through a pressurized hose. The firm also combined coloured readymade concrete in the construction.

To increase the beauty of the interiors and complement it with the overall design language, the firm will integrate natural materials such as rammed earth and wood elements.
