2019 WAN Awards: Makenna Resort - Drucker Architects and Associates

Alison Carter
29 Aug 2019

Makenna Resort - Drucker Architects and Associates is an entry in the Commercial category at the 2019 World Architecture News Awards.

Situated in the south of Bahia, a place of great importance due to the local nature (registered by UNESCO), the project is an intervention with clear intention to be in full harmony with nature and adapt to it. The architectural idea is of a primary architecture, which refers to a dissected and naked modernism. 

The project consists of a Club House with restaurant, services and 16 bungalows implanted in the only possible place (in a strip of reforestation of coconut palm trees) between the Atlantic forest (registered by UNESCO) and the vegetation of marine band. The buildings, which construction began in 2010, were restored in 2018, due to the local climatic aggression.
