Oppenheim Architecture is pleased to announce that its Ayla Golf Resort Comfort Stations project in Aqaba, Jordan was recognized by the American Shotcrete Association (ASA) at the ASA Twelfth Annual Outstanding Shotcrete Project Awards Banquet at the Vdara Hotel & Spa in Las Vegas, NV on January 17, 2017. The project received “Honorable Mention” by the ASA, which recognizes “excellence and innovation in projects in which the application of shotcrete has played a significant role.” Beat Huesler (pictured above), Director of European Operations for Oppenheim Architecture, was honored to present the project at the banquet and accept the award on behalf of the firm.
Looking to the natural dunescapes and mountains of the surrounding desert, an un-adorned local architectural heritage and the ancient Bedouin traditions as primary design references, Oppenheim Architecture’s innovative design for the Ayla Golf Resort Comfort Stations, or on-course rest areas, achieves a unique iconicism consistent with the firm’s concept and technique for the award-winning Ayla Golf Academy & Clubhouse design (read about Ayla Golf Academy & Clubhouse WAF 2016 Project Award here).
