6.What will the style of the resort be?
The resort will follow the theme of Gold Coast, Australian architecture
Architectural Design: Taking inspiration from Gold Coast architecture, Amisa boldly responds to the rapidly increasing demand for modern leisure island living. The resort development was conceived to allow its users to enjoy an active interaction with nature while preserving and enhancing its environment. The concept of the towers soaring above the rest of the natural site takes advantage of the picturesque views it offers. All units are guaranteed either a view of the meticulously planned amenities, the perfectly manicured resort, or the ever-soothing sea. Such confidence and exuberance definitely established Amisa as the defining hallmark of the island. Every unit is also provided with a spacious balcony which cantilevers beyond the main structure of the building as a more overt sculptural composition. The union of the curvaceous balconies to the commanding structure mimics the smooth waves and the infinite expanse of the ocean. The balconies enliven the buildings with their deep and fluid shadows. Daylight enhances the beauty of this development through the large windows.
Landscape Design based on Gold Coast Theme
The main aim of the landscape architectural design for Amisa is to provide appropriate settings for the three major architectural elements the project - the residential condominium buildings, the hotel and gaming complex. These building complexes are set amidst an environment that provides a holiday ambiance and relaxing, stress-free, fun setting that residents and guests will want to return too often, a total escape from the blandness of urban life.
