Carved right into the desert cliffs of the Wadi Rum in Jordan, this luxury eco-lodge is designed to take full advantage of the natural landscape in order to fully appreciate the surrounding desert. Oppenheim Architecture, a Florida based firm, are the designers of this amazing concept.
Appropriate desert architecture, including shading, natural ventilation and thermal mass will all play a large role in keeping the micro-climate comfortable for guests while providing a natural experience in the desert.
Oppenheim’s proposal seeks to establish a new benchmark for design, quality and sustainability in the natural environment.
If this lodge gets built, I can definitely see a part of a James Bond movie being filmed here.
Big thanks to ArchitectureSTYLE for sharing this amazing concept with us.

The islands are more than 60ft (20m) wide and more than 37 meters in length.
