Studio Philosophy Projects Portfolio Contact

"When creating a resort hotel destination concept One Leisure understands that the project’s vision must be a dynamically active and engaging landscape that supports its contextual environment while respecting the constraints of the project’s budget.  As they utilize a progression of constant design exploration through sketches, exchange of original ideas and team collaboration a spirit of adventure prevails in each step of the process.

Balanced with their understanding for meaningful guest experiences and the implementation of “cultural play” and “design calculation” they manipulate their thoughtful arrangement of forms, materials and deliberate sequencing of space consequently creating extraordinary atmospheres maximising the guest experience. The resulting resort concept vision reveals the new possibility for an evolving language of the composition, its expectations and the embodiment of a strong environmental sense of place.”
