介绍帕尔马盐选度假村,毛里求斯:
跟着 CAMILLE WALALA 和 JEAN-FRANÇOIS ADAM 来一场色彩缤纷的旅行

来自全新品牌盐选的第一个度假村正式开业,其设计灵感来源于这个色彩缤纷的岛屿,展现出另人印象深刻的风格,

现已开业 

毛里求斯,20181119 – 新推出的酒店品牌SALT已经开启了其位于毛里求斯东海岸的第一个度假村,帕尔马盐选度假村。 这是一个宁静的所在,旨在倡导可持续发展,与当地社区建立联系,并且把具有文化好奇心的,精于风格的现代旅行者介绍给真正的,质朴的毛里求斯人。 

它独特的外观源于 JFA 建筑事务所的当地毛里求斯建筑师 Jean-François Adam 和法国艺术家 Camille Walala 的合作。Jean-François Adam是一位屡获殊荣的建筑师,也是毛里求斯当地和国外著名的现代空间背后的梦想家。而 Camille Walala 是一位来自法国的艺术家,在世界各地的建筑上都可以找到她创作的生动的壁画作品。这是 Camille 首次尝试酒店设计,为毛里求斯的设计景观带来 了极有魅力的新元素,反映出盐选的进取精神。

 

致力于一切源于当地和可持续发展的想法,这个新颖的酒店品牌决定将游客带到当地人身边, 而不仅仅是带到这个地点, 并挖掘出目的地的核心。因此,Jean- François 设计的核心是期望将自然环境和毛里求斯当地的生活方式带给每一位游客,让他们真正了解他的家乡所提供的一切。在帕尔马纯白色沙滩的边缘,他采用令人惊叹的现有几何和里亚德式建筑,仔细改造了站立结构, 突出了酒店与大海的近距离接触。他将所有床铺朝向大海,并重新设计了游泳池以更好地与海滩相呼应。此外,他还使用了岛上温暖的热带风格灯光,使这个地方的自然色彩得到展现。在整个项目的过程中,动植物群都得到了很好的保护,为景观增添一种永恒的宁静感。Jean-François 解释说,“酒店的一切都旨在将人们聚集在一起。从面包店里的公共餐桌,餐厅和海滩酒吧,到毛里求斯的第一个屋顶酒吧和盐选均衡水疗中心的温馨空间,一切都是为了收集和分享旅行故事,以及享受这个令人迷人的地方。”

 

盐选品牌的核心是其独特的方式,从室内设计选择了艺术家而非室内设计师来打造,就可以看出盐选的特质。Camille Walala 无拘无束的色彩处理方法与她对毛里求斯岛的热情结合在一起,使她成为了完美的选择。

 

Camille 的工作是在她的创作冲动和这座岛屿真实的特性之间找到完美的平衡——新鲜,俏皮和令人无法抗拒的积极感。为了寻找灵感,她在毛里求斯旅行,与当地手工艺人会面,并吸收了点缀岛屿的明亮色彩,从青翠的风景,明亮的房屋,蔚蓝的海景和令人叹为观止的日落,到其社区精神和丰富多彩的文化碎片,这些都使毛里求斯如此与众不同。Walala 评论说:“人们为他们的房屋涂刷了令人惊叹的颜色,这些色调能够真正的在郁郁葱葱的热带环境中脱颖而出。当选择帕尔马盐选度假村的颜色时,我想尝试在自然色调和大胆的流行色彩之间取得平衡。这个地方应该是充满趣味的,同时向这座难以置信的美丽岛屿致敬。”

 

The Lux Collective 首席执行官 Paul Jones 说:“Camille Walala 与色彩的关系与大多数毛里求斯人的关系完全相同 - 对于两者而言,色彩是一种欢乐的载体,也是一种表达积极的方式。她是帕尔马盐选度假村的理想艺术家;在过去的几个 月里,我在这酒店住了 100 次。但无论何时我再次看到酒店,她的设计依旧带给我愉悦感。”

 

整个酒店的细节是真实的,手工的和独特的。当地的陶艺家 Janine 设计并制作了酒店的餐具 —— 一套漂亮的组合,共包含 950 件单品,用于帕尔马盐选度假村;每一件都完全手工制成。 Janine 分享道,“我想提供一些非常特别的东西,所以我们使用特殊配方的木炭粘土和灰色釉底来创造一种展示毛里求斯技艺的效果。”

 

Jean-François 和他的团队的支持下,Camille 遇到了许多当地人,例如 74 岁的篮子编织者 Reotee Buleeram,他在帕尔马盐选度假村制作了美丽的沙滩包。 还有父子二人,Mawlabaccus 和 Said Moosbally,他们是为整个度假村藤制椅子的幕后功臣。帕尔马盐选度假村展示了当地人才和真实的岛屿风格。Jean- François 回忆说,“与 Camille 一起参观工匠工作室,一起在复杂的细节上进行合作是非常特别的体验。这些经历是该项目最有价值的时刻。”

 

最终这是一家看起来和岛上其他酒店都不一样风格的酒店。大多数度假村都采用自己的设计模板,并将其移植到自己的设计中,而盐选度假村做了相反的事情,运用周围环境的特征来塑造它的外观和感觉。

 

帕尔马盐选度假村将现代探险家和社区及其生活方式联系起来,从而获得有意义的旅行体验。 盐选的客人有机会通过 Skill Swap 计划与当地人建立联系,与当地的生产商,设计师和手工艺人,如渔夫,陶艺家,篮子编织者等交换他们的时间和才能。餐厅的食物理念是新鲜,当地,自产,季节性和零浪费。大部分产品来自种植水果和蔬菜的盐选农场(2019 年第一季度末开放)和当地的农场。盐选度假村意识到人与人之间的紧密联系,以及食物选择对环境和客人健康产生的重大影响,致力于提供优秀的,干净的和恰当的食物。虽然度假村的厨师是国际慢食和慢食厨师联盟的一员,但是帕尔马盐选度假村正在与当地官方代表毛里求斯地球市场密切合作。 盐选坚持慢食旅游促进生态旅游,为我们所有的客人提供充满故事,传统,美味和工艺的美食之旅。客人更可以坚信可持续发展和环保意识是酒店的核心。只需简单住宿一晚,他们就可以帮助增强当地社区的能力,其原因是酒店的一切资源源于当地,酒店为社区创造就业机会,并通过免费使用一次性塑料,支持生物农业和造成零浪费来保护环境。

 

所有这一切都将帕尔马盐选度假村定位为可持续发展的实践倡导者。与 Positive Luxury 的合作意味着可以帕尔马盐选可以持有蝴蝶徽章,这枚荣耀授予给在豪华的生活方式和谨慎负责的行动之间找到平衡的品牌。盐选度假村的团队确保客人在享受豪华住宿的同时,也可以真正地保护当地。
