Comments Off on Carlon Studio’s Sun N Fun Wellness Center Targets LEED Gold in Florida

The LEED Gold -seeking 18,000 square foot Sun N Fun Wellness Center was designed for a Florida resort looking to provide new services to attract the baby boomer generation of residents. The project’s goal was to connect to the existing pool and create an “open” feeling by taking advantage of views to the east. Full glass facades on the east and north provide large amounts of natural light and views outside. The building utilizes large overhangs on the south side to shade the against the harsh Florida sun, and it incorporates additional green building systems including a 10,000 gallon rainwater recycling cistern, a state of the art cooling system, and lights which are controlled by occupancy and daylight sensors. + Sun N Fun Wellness Center + Carlson Studio Architecture The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Himalayan Village: A Charming Mountain Resort Made of Local Materials in Northern India

The Himalayan Village is located in northern India’s Parvati Valley, which has become a destination for backpackers, rock climbers and nature lovers in recent years because of the area’s pristine natural beauty. The resort, which is situated on the banks of the Parvati River, is surrounded by a thick forest of deodar pine trees, and the cottages look out on distant snow-capped mountains. The interiors of the 600 to 750-square-foot cottages are decorated with handcrafted wood furniture , handmade tussle silk curtains, and traditional brass fittings. The walls are plastered with dark brown mud (it looks nicer than it sounds). The resort also includes spa services, a traditional bar, and multiple on-site restaurants that serve a variety of Indian, Himachali and continental cuisines. + Himalayan Village Via The News Himachal Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: eco resort , green vacation , Himalayan Village , himalayas , hotel , India , Kasol , Kathkunia , Parvati Valley , traditional architecture , traditional building techniques
