The tourist resort is located in an uninhabited area under the waterfalls in a tropical rain forest in the Malaysian state of Sarawak on the island of Borneo. The architectural solution is an application of identifying factors of the surrounding environment – tropical rain-forest and a waterfall with a lake.

The objects appear to be situated randomly; however their location is defined by Jurij Vega’s ballistic model (calculation of a canon projectile curve, which is almost identical to the curve of the water drop after its dispersion from the water surface).

The objects are shaped like water drops. The peripheral membrane consists of several materials with different functions – it therefore functions as a solar collector and its translucency can be adjusted. The interior is functionally designed and is divided into a living and sleeping area.

The project received an award in an international architectural competition.
