Architects in London will develop the world's first 'zero-carbon' five-star resort. They guaranteed that it will have no harmful environmental impact on the environment. Its 35 villas will be fully independent, using only energy from the sun and wind and generating slight waste or carbon releases. Its design integrates many creative, energy-saving activities. Its pool will use water that has been naturally filtered. Its natural air-conditioning gathers the sea breeze into the bedroom, and then cooled by passing over the pool. Chilly water pipes will run through the bed to cool it. The villa's water supply came from rainwater and desalinated seawater that is being accumulated in its own tank. To keep the villas warm hot water comes from pipes which run below the solar panels on the roof.
