"What distinguishes this project for other projects is its interpretation of environment design. We are creating something that is both beautiful and environmental."
Founder of BACA Architects
Our holistic design, innovative yet practical, is helping to create an environmentally oriented paradise.
With the majority of the site off-grid, the concept is to feature 125 luxurious designer-styled floating and lakeside lodges, coupled with 200 woodland retreat lodges, a luxury 104 bedroomed boutique hotel, restaurant, conference facilities, an indoor pool, a leisure club, a superior spa, a state-of-the-art gymnasium, and a picturesque wedding and party venue. The lodges are a mix of designer 2, 3, or 4-bedroomed accommodations which are designed to offer luxury and comfort whilst maximising energy conservation and carbon reduction and where practicable, to aspire to reaching Passivhaus (Passive House) standard. Equipped to the highest standards in collaboration with Armani, and having decking areas with sunken jacuzzis, the eco-friendly aspects have been designed fully and subtly to support the entire project.
"Tyram Lakes is a deep green environmental development. We have tried to integrate all aspects of sustainability into the whole program to create something that is exemplar. This project will result in true sustainability measured by any standard"

The roofs will all be fitted with solar panels and will be backed by an innovative advanced technology and sustainability system from Immersa, which will capture renewable sources of energy and their subsequent battery storage. Energy will be integrated into smart power grids to deliver sustainable electricity supplies across the entire project.
The BACA team also introduced Geyser Thermal Energy into the development, and they will be providing bespoke thermal energy solutions for the project. Geyser has recognised the lake as a potential energy source in order to meet the heating and hot water needs for the lodges, hotel and leisure complex. By using renewable energy and utilising their innovative heat pump and heat recovery system, it will use less than 90% of the energy of a standard boiler, and the water treatment system will save over 10,000,000 litres of water annually.
The proposed hotel sits respectfully on the site, flowing around the lake shore’s curvatures. Regarding its materiality, a contemporary high-tech solution is proposed for the facade and the structure. The proposed materials, apart from curtain walling, will be mineral-based and their texture and colour will make reference to the local vernacular architecture and local materials such as York stone.
"People are drawn to water for wellness and relaxation but the threat of flooding is an oft-ignored potential hindrance. The project at Tyram is an exemplar in both flood resilient and ecological design"
