Villa M, whose architectural conception and art direction of the spaces is signed by Philippe Starck in collaboration with Triptyque architecture, aims to create a new pact between cities, nature and health.

Forme Architecture + Urbanisme has delivered an atypical project – the conversion of a horticultural greenhouse into a hospitality room, located in the private garden of the breast cancer clinic Clinique Saint Jean de Dieu, within a conservation area in Paris.

Designed by Oppenheim Architecture, Desert Rock will integrate architecture with nature as a hotel, and its accompanying facilities will be built into the stunning Saudi mountain landscape.

This reclaimed hotel floats south of the Australian external territory in the Indian Ocean. Here, an increase in plastic pollution has damaged ecosystems to the Cocos (Keeling) archipelago, trapping and killing hermit crabs amongst the crustaceans that are an important part of tropical environments. This sealife disperses seeds and aerates and fertilises the soil, therefore, their decline could have a significant impact on surrounding ecosystems.

Baca Architects has released visuals of a floating island, the design of which was inspired by the water lilies that abound in the surrounding lake. The island will comprise units of holiday apartments and forms part of Baca’s master plan for Ashwicken Lake, a proposed new eco-resort in Norfolk, UK, which has recently been submitted for planning.

The Norwegian Trekking Association (DNT) has completed the first of a series of unique ‘day trip cabins’, built to make treks in the Norwegian Mountains more accessible for novice hikers and explorers.
