Nature Discovery Building

Tropical Resort

Venturer's Nature Discovery Building is a multi-use space for the 5-Star Resort at Vommuli Island.  As a part of a larger public space package for this Maldivian resort, The Nature Discovery works included the steel and tass timber / hybrid structure, sub-floor, timber decking, stairs, skylights, and window works. 

The primary structural challenge in this building was to create a large volume space with rounded transitions, and no internal bracing.  The structure relies on a robust moment connection which braces the CLT walls to the RC foundation beams.
