Situated in Siwa, Egypt is the Ecolodge, which consists of a holiday home and guest house overlooking the desert. Built by Paris architects Laetitia Delubac and Christian Feìlix, the building is constructed out of locally available materials such as mud, sun-fired bricks, palm wood, reeds, and stone.

Built to be a retreat dedicated to contemplation and rest, the Ecolodge is a slice of heaven on earth.

Implications - With the abundance of interesting abodes that exist throughout the world, there is an increased pressure for architects to create design that pushes the boundaries. Businesses should take notes from the most recent architectural designs as their features can often translate into patterns that will be seen in other realms, such as sharp lines in fashion designs.
