Roofing Wednesdays: Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort

Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort

Technically, it's not just the roof of this desert resort that is "green" the design of the whole structure has been awarded the international Green Globe Certification (a global sustainability management system and certification for the hospital, travel and tourism industry).

The 206-room Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort (which means "Palace of the Mirage") in Abu Dhabi has reduced electricity costs by 22%, recycles 13% of their garbage, and has an onsite sewage treatment plant to reduce water consumption. And the more "cosmetic" green design allows the building to blend in with the surrounding desert landscape.
