Briefing of Villas resort project located on a very steep loot overseeing a beautiful bay gives the opportunity to create prime quality villas based on a layout of overlapping terraces to expose the first floor living area towards the west to enjoy the sunset light and bedrooms’ second floor area towards east to enjoy the morning light. Traditional style architecture of the roof made in dry bamboo and hay ensure a naturally ventilated habitat . 20.000 sqm master plan’s design includes individual and row-scheme villas, clubhouse as well as small apartment’s low-height condos.

Villa’s layout is characterized by overlapping terraces. First floor living area is exposed towards west, south-west to enjoy the sunset light and second floor area faces east, south east to let bedrooms be illuminated by the soft morning light. Thanks to the terrace structure on which the building is based, the angular shape of the volumes and the opening of doors and windows towards three cardinal directions ensure natural ventilation and a spectacular 180 degrees view over Taling Ngam Bay. 

Presence of the water in traditional thai-architecture has a mandate on the micro climate of the building. The full length stretch of water pool along the bedroom side helps cooling down the heat during the day and warming up the air during the night. Unlike the concrete block aesthetic of the standard hospitality architecture in Thailand this project aims to melt architecture and landscape by defining the design of these terraces through angular lines inspired by the shape of Taling Ngam’s shore.  

The intent of the project is to deliver a visually low impact architectural intervention and to relate to the site’s landscape design.

By studying the shape of landscape and associating its angular profile to the cultural heritage of Thai traditional patterns the villa’s layout came up as a natural choice. Terraces scheme of both floors standing on pillars lift the building into mid-air exposing the building on all 3 sides to natural light and ventilation and elevating it from the ground surface for the jungle.

目位于苏梅岛南面一个非常陡峭的海岸上,地理位置的优势提供了一个难得的机会给设计师打造一个一流景观的度假区。别墅沿岸线座落,平台结构半悬在崖上向海面延伸,层层上叠的建筑结构把内部空间分割成一楼的生活区以及二楼的卧室​​区。方位上经过精心的考虑,生活区可欣赏到日落时的金色夕阳,卧室区则享尽日出时明媚的晨光。

项目是一个总体20,000平方米的度假区规划,当中包括独立别墅,会所以及低层公寓式住宅。建筑群的屋顶皆以传统方式建成,所用的物料为晒干的竹和稻草,以确保通风良好。


​由于项目座落的位置独特,建筑设计上容许了把门窗规划成三面的对流,不但通风良好,而且坐拥180度的完美景观。 同时,水亦扮演着相当重要的角色,影响着内部空间的微观环境:卧室外部的等高水墙起了在日间降温,晚间降温的调节作用。

不同于泰国到处可见和环境格格不入的混凝土方块式建筑,别墅层层叠叠的结构和平台不规则的形状和达灵岩棱角分明的岸线相互呼应,务求让建筑和环境能相互融合。对周边的景观和海岸轮廓的观察,启发设计师将棱角分明的岸线线条和泰国传统图腾联想在一起,及后自然而然的套用在别墅的设计当中。
建筑设计上,平台式的设计把建筑体积升高至半空之中,使得别墅享有三面环绕的采光和景观,同时不受到地面树林的影响。
