Description: Ian Banks was involved in the feasibility design of eco tourist resort at Hodaafushi island in the Maldives for resort operator and developer Voyages Maldives. Delivered projects included masterplan feasibility, drawn sketch schemes and both traditional model making and 3D virtual modelling. Designs included of all the land-based hotel and water based bungalows, as well as all service accommodation as required for a tourism tender bid for a 25-year island lease made to the Maldives Government. Unfortunately this bid was ultimately unsucccesful, though others are now potentially in the pipeline.
