Brief: To design a 5* Nordic Inspired Spa in humid 45 degree desert location.
Concept: Raison d'Etre's new concept LivNordic is a blend of the long proven Nordic health traditions combined with the latest in spa and wellness. Connectivity to nature, a healthy lifestyle, beauty, and sound mindfulness are characteristics of the Nordic people. The LivNordic Spa pursues holistic wellbeing by drawing on the rich resource that Nordic culture, traditional and contemporary, has to offer.
Outcome: Katara Beach Club is a sensational experience with natural harmony. Bringing the outside in with a fascinating interplay of light and shadow. A Nordic experience that exudes an enchanting blend of sensuality in an interior courtyard and a relaxing oasis. Spaces designed to have both cooling and calming effect bringing out an extra ordinary experience.
