We are quite aware of the scientific fact that water is converted into vapor, but architect Orlando de Urrutia has changed this concept with his “Water Building Resort.” Inspired by a drop of water when falling from the air, the Water Building Resort is a unique combination of nature and technology that converts air into water with the help of solar power. A sustainable building projected for the water-conscious themes and practices, the HITECH resort is designed in a specific manner that integrates the renewable energy and generates electricity and water from the air. Solar energy is harnessed by a southerly facing facade covered by transparent photovoltaic glass that allows light to pass through it, thereby generating electricity. The northern facade features lattices to provide ventilation along with Teex Micron Atmospheric Water Generators to convert condensation and humid air into pure drinking water.
Designed for humid regions, the Water Building Resort not only purifies salty sea and rainwater but also controls the water quality with the help of a water treatment facility on the bottom floor. Based on the theme of water, its upper floor harbors restaurants, gyms, exhibition halls, hotel and conference rooms, and spa services.
