In this free hand sketch of layout plan, the main idea based on the nature as a source of inspiration and creativity, so that the main shapes of the design came from analysis of natural elements in Siwalandscapes, which surround the motel. The design ofthe free spaces area in “Wahed well” had carves and zigzag lines matching together to create a harmonious and unique design as a part of natural surrounding environment, and completely used technology.There were two basic axes which passed with the main area that included the well as a central point which crosses to all the basic functionally spaces like: reception, swimming pool, restaurant, bedrooms, and all the areas surrounded by a beautiful landscapes.
Some views have craves lines, and zigzags lines from Siwa Oasis, which were a basic idea in the design.
These are tiles which used in a basic corridor in the layout plan.There are two kinds of tiles, first one is a salt stone tile that content of small stone, salt, which exist in Siwa lakes, and polycarbonate. The polycarbonate worked as a reflective surface which reflects the noon light at night, because it is a transparent material that gave the stone strong body by covering it.Second one sand stone tiles which feature natural and unique shape.
