Brits reveal huge resort project in Azerbaijan

  • Comment

British practices the International Design Group and the Bush Consultancy have unveiled proposals for this waterfront resort on the Caspian Sea in Azerbaijan

Dubbed the Fire and Water project, the 5-star hotel resort scheme on an undeveloped plot in Baku will feature 350 bedrooms, sports and leisure facilities, and 45 private pavilions surrounding a lagoon with access to the sea.

The practices, which are both based in Bristol, have designed the scheme ‘to echo the naturally occurring gas flares and water resources’ in the country which gained independence from the Soviet Union 20 years ago.

The resort is part of a wider tourism strategy for the country involving the development of beach, ski and golf resorts.

Zaha Hadid’s Heydar Aliyev Centre and Broadway Malyan’s Port Baku Residences are both currently being constructed in Baku.
