The practice of Sanzpont Arquitectura unveiled their plans for a sustainable palace in Quatar which is based on the concept of the Sidra Tree. The project is a submission for an international restricted competition and the design wants to promote life and nature, hence its name.

Palace for Nature wants to be a luxurious oasis in the middle of the desert which uses desalinated and reclaimed water to irrigate the botanical gardens and integrated photovoltaic panels to supply the power needed for the large project.

There are several indoor and outdoor gardens, pavilions and water features comprising the palace with the main space designed as an oasis and covered by a perforated dome which has a pattern similar to that of a Sidra Tree’s branches, which is native to Quatar.

The designers studied the historical typologies and architecture of the country in order to implement it into their design to make it closer to the cultural heritage.
