Here are the contemporary beach house design with simple rectilinear roof inspiration. This design on a 569m2 corner lot in the city of Praia is designed to make the most of limited view of the sea and adhere to the principles of passive solar design strong. The building replaced an older style beach house has been carefully designed to meet the block Strait adhere to the policies of the municipality at the time and shadow. The building is an articulate form rectilinear rectilinear under a simple roof. A wall of travertine clad crosses strong blade of the house and helps divide the house into separate zones. The north façade is controlled to achieve summer shading of windows. The pool has positioned itself firmly against the house on a double volume “balcony” and can be clearly seen as it moves through the house. The light is reflected from the surface of the pool sending shadows on the ceiling of the room.

opulence helix hotel design by leeser architecture

Here are the fantastic and opulence Helix hotel design by Leeser Architecture in Zayed Bay in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, Called the Helix Hotel for its staggered floor plates, it rests in the bay, partially floating in the water and adjacent to the serpentine Sheik Zayed Bridge currently under construction by designer Zaha Hadid.the Hotel Helix takes part in a critical dialogue between rich and civility among the various services offered by a small town and the demands of a guest at the five star hotel. The floor of the curves suggests a winding path leads through a bustling city and many program elements are open to the views through the central void. Although the gap seems to offer complete visibility, there are enclaves for private meetings and guest privacy. It is designed for an activity that feeds the next time that affect clear separations between each activity. Moreover, a feeling of being free to experiment haphazardly all aspects of the hotel without having to decide on an agenda in advance. In the days luxury holiday of culture, there are play areas make the hotel a destination in an iconic design. From the beginning, is both a showcase for the wealth of the opulent life, because it is a totally enclosed urban experience. For example, the building has an inverse functional origin of water drops from the ceiling down through the vacuum at the lower pressure. At the entrance, valet parking for customers driving to its fleet, which, instead of being predictable on the surface or below the hotel, is located in the bay instead. Cars are literally pushed into the water. As guests head to their rooms, spectacular views Zayed Bay even more dramatic in the upper floors. At the top of the propeller, the pool deck on the top floor has a full group size glass bottom, and visible water swimmers from eight floors below ground level. In the restaurant below the lobby, the waves of the bay are so close to the floor plate that absorbs at the edge of the restaurant inside the glass curtain wall.

Originally named Burj Dubai (or Dubai Tower), the soaring skyscraper is now called Burj Khalifa, after Khalifa Bin Zayed, the president of the United Arab Emirates. Dubai has been a showplace for innovative buildings, and the Burj Khalifa shatters world records for building height. The skyscraper is much taller than Taiwan's Taipei 101, which rises 508 metres (1,667 feet). During a time of economic slowdown, the Burj Khalifa has become an icon for wealth and progress in Dubai. No expense was spared for the building's opening ceremonies on January 4, 2010.

The Palm Islands in Dubai.  New Dutch dredging technology was used to create these massive man made islands.  They are the largest artificial islands in the world and can be seen from space.  Three of these Palms will be made with the last one being the largest of them all. 

Upon completion, the resort will have 2,000 villas, 40 luxury hotels, shopping centers, movie theaters, and many other facilities. It is expected to support a population of approximately 500,000 people. It is advertised as being visible from the moon
