A Breezy Villa on the Beach

Background

This 4,000 square foot beach house combines urban sophistication with simple modern design to pay homage to the beautiful nature of the Island of Ko Samet, Thailand. Only few hours drive from Bangkok, and then a short ferry, this property is ideal for the client who lives in Hong Kong and travels frequently to Thailand to beat the hustle of city life.

The design was developed with the client in Thailand with plans to be built in 2023.

The Design

Bend House

 

The elevated concrete box provides the private living quarters while the ground floor spaces are set for entertaining indoors and out. With a guest room on the ground floor it also serves as the perfect vacation property.

Filleted and right angles are played with to define the key points of the form.

The feature staircase not only connects the upstairs and down but it also places a role in blending the interior to the exterior. The bent wood staircase wraps from wall, to floor, to ceiling – creating a sculptural element that also forms part of the building envelope.
