The Design

RED Design Group, a global design firm was commissioned to undertake the Public Facilities Architecture and Public Facilities Interior Design

The design of the resort is contemporary but embraces the traditional features of Spanish Revival and Mediterranean Architecture. Red Design Group’s design incorporates elements of arches, terracotta roof tiles, arcades, ornamental ironwork and painted tiles.

Incorporating local materials that blend with the design style was an important feature of the design.  The use of decorative tiles, terracotta and ironwork create a level of familiarity with local visitors. These design elements also fit the overall design aesthetics.

The design intent with the Public Facilities is that all buildings link together as part of the same village, that is Novahills. Above all the club house is the central focus within the development.
