Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, NSW, Australia
Pure Projects' Kevin Miksch and David Williams were responsible for the delivery of this iconic resort in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales in Australia.
The resort was constructed in an ecologically sensitive area and the design, material selection and construction all took into account the effects of activities on the surrounding natural habitat.
Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley was the first resort in the world to achieve zero carbon emission status, which was achieved through the incorporation of sustainable design principals. Due to the isolated nature of the resort all drinking water is manufactured on site and sewer waste is treated on-site and used for irrigation.
The development comprises 40 stand-alone villas, main resort including pools, restaurant and fine dining areas, remote staff accommodation, horse stables and riding facilities and a significant amount of infrastructure including dammed areas for use in area bushfire management.
