The Deserta island is laidback destination on a stunning stretch of white sand dunes. With stunning panoramic views Estamine is a great venue for relaxing with friends or just soaking up the atmosphere whilst you can watch birds and boat...


“Seen from above it looks like a crab". This is what it says about the architecture of the building in a specialist publication. But apart from wanting to create a building that fitted well with the surrounding landscape, we didn’t want it to interfere with the well-being of the Island. The lack of any public infrastructure meant that we had to come up with ideas for producing energy, making drinking water and dealing with the drains.
