Amilla Fushi is a luxury Maldivian resort in the UNESCO-protected biosphere reserve of Baa Atoll.
Akin Atelier led the design direction of 60 beach, tree, and ocean homes, and 8 oversized residences on Amilla Fushi. The concept was built around a new luxury for the area, to move away from the thatched & pitched vernacular typically associated with the Maldives, and look to traditional Maldivian coral-stone buildings - geometrically square, flat roofed and minimal. This new luxury is about space & light, an interesting relationship with the landscape, and a connection to the land.
Communal spaces including the lagoon pool, spa & arrival jetty were also conceptualised by Akin Atelier.
