The Yacht Club Facility will sit on the Island of Korovesa providing amenities and services to the marina. The essence is to provide a “home away from home” experience for the visitors within a 2000 m2 facility comprising of Recreational, Retail, Administrative and Wellness buildings.
Through the use of local resources and a design that dialogues with nature, Nawi will provide a new standard of sustainable luxury and organic design style building, not only in Fiji, but globally. Inspired by organic sea shell shapes,the buildings will surround Korovesa Island as a necklace adorns a lady’s neck.
Nawi has engaged an architectural design team that was uniquely selected and specifically purposed for the specialized craft skills in sustainable design build and innovative green architecture, with an emphasis on bamboo. With past projects around the world including Brazil, US, Spain, Indonesia and Mexico, the primary objective of this team has been to develop a sustainable design/build approach from infrastructure to organic vertical construction. With their unique perspective they will be developing the most distinctive boutique Marina in the world - not only complimenting the South Pacific as a whole but putting Savusavu on the international map as a one of a kind marine destination.
The main feature buildings (administration & guest amenities) will be developed and constructed into the natural topography of the island; live rock walls will be crafted into the structure to create an experience for the guests to stay in contact with nature. Organic roofing inspired by the shapes of the sea and built from bamboo will protect the buildings from rain and sun while naturally orientating with prevailing breezes for ideal cross ventilation comfort. The organic shapes inspired by nature allow the fluency of spaces, the connection between all of them and creating a symbiotic experience.
