Nukudrau, Fiji Islands
Nukudrau Island is located in the Northern waters, near Vanua Levu, Fiji.
The 50 million dollar project involved Master-planning and Concept planning of luxury modern villas, a resort and club facility with a marina complex. 2000 square meters was dedicated to each villa and the design brief also included proposals for a clubhouse with a restaurant and a swimming pool. The architecture was tropical, with a heavy use of timbers and planning that was open and flexible.
The design brief required AAPiDesign to create a unique island experience where all villa owners felt alone on their own private island. The master-planning process was handled in delicate manner, preserving all tree, views, privacy and the island natural beauty. Complex coastal engineering principles were also adopted to create the marina, sustainable beaches and islands.
