Virgin Galactic Resort, Saudi Arabia

Virgin Galactic
REAL Spaceport meets Intergalactic Resort
How often does a designer get invited into the Mohave Desert compound to check out the rockets (Spaceship 1) and delivery aircraft (Spaceship 2)? And how often does one have a chance to design a complex featuring a working spaceport? This is certainly one of the most exciting projects we worked on so far.  Christian Hope’s 3113 Studio and Hetzel Design were charged with a task to master plan and design a functional spaceport in conjunction with a resort, aerospace attraction, strong edutainment component and support facilities in Saudi desert.
We felt nothing but pride when Mr. Richard Branson picked (multiple schemes by different designers were prepared) and presented our scheme to the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia. We hope to push this project beyond the concept level in near future. Hopefully we get to ride Spaceship 1 at the opening day as well.
