Roatán Próspera Residences by Zaha Hadid Architects

Zaha Hadid Architects' residential community in Roatán features in today's Dezeen Weekly newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter includes a modular housing project designed by Zaha Hadid Architects for an island near Honduras.

Roatán Próspera is a residential community intended for Roatán, a Caribbean island off the coast of Honduras.

The complex will be a modular construction formed of timber-framed residences each boasting curved roofs and expansive rounded balconies that can be customised by residents.

Thanks to its luxurious features commenters have said that the project would make a great set for a new Lord of the Rings film – perfect as "Rivendell's retreat for the rich".
