Oppenheim Architecture+Design, Florida-based firm, is the designer for a new Desert Lodge in Wadi Rum, Jordan. The project seeks to establish a new benchmark for design, quality and sustainability in the natural environment.
Emerging from the landscape like an uncovered stone, the luxury accommodations are revealed in geometric cut-outs from the topography.
The architecture is inserted into the natural faults and fissures of the land, resulting in simple and elemental forms that aim to enhance and embrace the site.
As a living space, the project seeks to provide a direct connection between man and nature by leaving many elements of the design raw and honest to its surrounding. Accommodating a rock lodge, spa lodge, tent lodge and reserve villa.
