When comes to resort, the first thing comes into our minds are probably something like forest, beach, mountain, basically, places related to natural environments. It is understandable, because we want to escape from busy city. However, Aera, the first Vertical Resort Concept by OBMI’s innovation lab have a different understanding of the transitional resort concept. This model is a first for cities: an integrated resort experience in an urban center that reduces building footprint, provides wellness through intimate access to nature, and accessibility to an oasis without the need for extensive travel.
Leveraging vertical architecture minimizes the footprint in areas where land is precious in value and availability. This reduces the environmental impact on the surrounding land and encourages domestic travel.
Aera’s design includes seven districts: dining, art, fashion, drama, garden, wellness, and family, and the sky deck includes a pool with a bird’s eye view of the city to intrigue travelers and locals. Serving as an escape within the city, the walking trails lined with greenery allow for a true sense of escape from the stresses and challenges of the metropolis.
Just like a typical resort at an exotic destination, Aera offers intrigue for an entire family. There is recreational fun for all ages, lavish spa offerings and a multitude of culinary experiences.
Sounds pretty good right? But personally, if you want to go a resort in tropical area, I still prefer to go there in personal. For me, this “Vertical Resort” is just more like a recreational place.
