The Westin Maldives Resort / Peia Associati



Baa Atoll was classified as a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve in June 2011. This significant achievement for Maldives placed it within the elite categories of world famous sites such as Komodo island in Indonesia, Uluru (Ayer’s Rock) in Australia and the Galápagos Islands in Ecuador.

1)Tourism is a major economical resource for the Maldives, but an economy destroying its own reason why for the 500.000 inhabitants and almost One Million of visitors per year with 10% annual increase.
2) Maldives will be one of the first lands to be submerged underwater due to the dissolution of the poles and climate changes. The height of the island ranges between 2,5 m and 1,2m with a forecasted 50 cm rise in the water level in the next 50 years
3) Resorts can be ideal opportunities to implement sustainability, where ecological would really mean economical from the cost of kerosene, to the production of energy, to the micro plastic pollution.

In the pre design phase, all of the above mentioned pre-conditions were integrated with the aim of conceiving a realistic solution. One that not only fulfills the client’s goals but also serves as a manifesto for sustainable resorts in one of the most intricate areas on the planet.

The architecture mirrors the natural elements of the island whilst minimizing the impact on the environment from the lush green foliage (where buildings were placed without the removal of existing trees), to the marine life that inhabit the waters around the coral island.

This 14 acre island was transformed into a touristic village for 150 visitors with 70 villas and suites (41 on island and 29 overwater), 3 restaurants, arrival jetty, welcome building, wellness center, over water SPA, kids club and complementary buildings such as technical areas, storages, and workshops for 250 staff members with Back-of-House structures and MEP installations. The master plan includes 98 buildings with 25 alternating typologies and a unique integrated design.

Knowing that obtaining a LEED certificate is impossible in Maldives, due to the fact that all materials are imported and the out of grid energy system is supplied by diesel generators, the design follows binding rules that guarantee reasonable and affordable sustainability, from the maximum reduction of fossil energy consumption, to the all inclusive plastic free strategy.(the bottled drinking water only through a designed bottling plant and optimization of the desalination plant and a glass-recycling plant for other bottles for compaction and construction of building blocks).

Minimising the resort’s impact on the area was a key part of the design brief, working closely with environmental experts to find solutions that would combat coastal erosions, calculate wave pressure on the shore and the rising water levels ,better comprehend how to utilize winds within the architectural design, and how to adhere to the changes between dry and monsoon season that affect the island’s geometry and size. All of the resort’s buildings were constructed with waterproof white cubes topped by organic shaped timber roofs that create a natural ventilation system through the double roof structure. This combination of material allows heat absorption and thermal mass to act as a coolant. The result, shows a 40% decrease for the use of air conditions, when compared with other resorts.

Contrasting the curved roof which mimic’s the local marine life jewels like turtles, whale sharks and mantas, the Back-of-House flat roofs are used for solar and photovoltaic panels as well as for hydroponic cultivation of fruits and vegetables to minimize unjustified imports to supply the need of food on the island. The shape of the arrival jetty and the kids club, have a clear analogy by mixing the white shell of a giant clam and the White or Pinocchio Whale. In both cases, a tensile structure supplied by ETFE fabric is stretched on top of a galvanized light white steel curved skeleton resistant to sea, wind and salt that creates the effect of white sails employed to minimize the heat of the sun and increase the Albedo effect. The shape is just an aerodynamic factor, however; it is appreciated by visitors due to the ability to instantly link it with marine life upon their arrival by seaplane. The aerial view of the master plan is an important factor in the perceptual approach.

We opted to use engineered and fast-growing treated wood from controlled forestation areas for decking where other resorts used rare and endangered teak. For this reason and due to the curved shape, the structure of the double roofing is formed by smaller beam pieces in glue lam timber. As for the other 2 public buildings, mechanical construction was used, prefabricated buildings were assembled on site to reduce waste, energy usage and transportation needed. The design strategy applied the “second life” concept for most materials possible for example using the piles which were left to form a fence.

潜水中心则是由改造后的集装箱组成,这些集装箱最初用于运输,后来又被当做工地的办公室。现在则采用悬臂式木材将其覆盖,配备了双层屋顶和交叉通风系统。防波堤的骨架采用预制混凝土系统建造,通过对海床的详细研究,设计师使用桩系代替基础基座,并尽可能减少了柱子的使用,从而最大限度减少了建造时间和建筑基础在珊瑚礁上的占地面积。防波堤的甲板不是由稀有的柚木制成的,而是由新西兰快速再造林种植园的热带松木木材制成。除了使用创新和耐用的材料外,室内设施还采用了天然材料,如小木材、死珊瑚和钙基灰泥。还有特定陶瓷饰面的地板、泳池和浴室中可持续的合成产品。所有水龙头都做了更为环保的处理,如选用不锈钢AISI 316,拒绝有害的镀铬材料。

The dive center, formed of refurbished shipping containers, were initially used for transportation and later as site offices, were covered with a cantilevered timber wood implementing the double roof and cross ventilation system. The skeleton of the jetties are built with the use of a prefab concrete system that, with specific studies of the sea bed, minimized construction time and footprint on the reef, with the least amount of columns possible, by using the piling system in place of foundation plinths. The jetty’s deck is not made of rare teak wood, but is made of tropical pine wood timber from New Zeeland’s fast reforestation plantations. Natural materials were used even for the interiors like small timber, dead corals and calcium-based plasters, in addition to the use of innovative and durable materials. For example creating particular ceramic finishings for the floors, incorporating sustainable synthetic products for pools and bathrooms. All taps and faucet are without hazardous and chrome finishing, but in “more green” and eternal Stainless Steel AISI 316.

The resort opened in November 2018 and many visitors were attracted, not only by the unique natural beauty of the island and its coral reef, but by the architectural features unusual for the Maldives, where a false localism and a non-existent vernacular matrix prevail within the typical resort design. A green directory is present in the resort to stimulate the curiosity of the visitors with insights on how the resort was built. The intention is always, and here more than ever, to explain the architectural expressiveness, in order to stimulate tourism that is aware of environmental problems.
