STATUS // COMPLETED 2009
CLIENT// ISLAND BUILDING
LOCATION // PHUKET, THAILAND
Luna is a 10 villa project located on an inland site within the Laguna area. The villas are set within a 500m2 plot and designed so as to ensure absolute privacy, open plan living and a generous garden and pool setting.
The inverted pitch roof brings a dynamic form into the house creating a very open and well-lit relationship of the interior spaces to the surrounding gardens. The architecture has not attempted to embrace the vernacular, in terms of form or detailing, opting instead to relate to the tropical island context in terms of environmental responsiveness.
A feature spine wall, clad in local sandstone, runs through the house, guiding one from the car porch to the pool terrace on the far side.
