There is nothing hotter in the eco-chic world than taking a structure that is a blight to the eye and making it beautiful. That is exactly what Houston-based Morris Architects plans to do with the Gulf Coast's most obvious eyesores, oil rigs. They plan on taking one of the 4,000 oil rigs and transforming it into a state-of-the-art spa and resort.

The Oil Rig Resort and Spa will definitely offer ocean views and a lot of unique ways to enjoy the Gulf. Another key point that makes the resort sustainable is that it is completely autonomous from the shore for most of its needs. The Oil Rig Resort and Spa will use a combination of solar and wind to provide the electricity needed to make it a location to remember. Stats for Oil Rig Resorts Trending: Older & Average
