Oppenheim Architecture's Bahamas eco-resort will bring guests closer to nature

Oppenheim Architecture are creating an environmentally sustainable eco-resort in the Bahamas that is aimed at providing a secluded retreat for guests while helping them to develop a deeper connection with nature.

illa Bimini will cover 40ac (16ha) along a 9,000ft (2,750m) stretch of coastline on Rockwell Island and is described as "a holistic community where every element is designed to blur the boundary between architecture and the landscape".

The design of the resort draws of the beauty of the natural surroundings and its buildings will be built with "local materials that offer a contemporary take on the vernacular architecture of the island."

In addition to 49 hotel rooms and overwater suites, there will be 54 private villas with floor-to-ceiling windows that provide views of the Atlantic Ocean and Bimini Bay.

The villas will each take the form of a cluster of small volumes arranged around a secluded pool and garden, providing private space for residents to enjoy.

Elsewhere, there will be a library, restaurant, lounge and communal pavilions.

The resort buildings will be connected by a variety of outdoor spaces designed by Raymond Jungles, including a beach-front pool, an overwater spa, terraces with plunge pools, fruit gardens, bocce ball and tennis courts and a marina.

Sustainability features, meanwhile, will include a solar array, an energy management system, smart-home technology and back-up generator applications.
