Villa Noi, Phang Nga

The project takes advantage of the site’s existing pine trees.  We dissected the house’s various programs into separate, smaller units and distributed them amongst the lush landscape, using the trees as natural visual barriers.  It was our primary objective not to cut any existing trees and thus the plan of the project was directly driven by the locations of these natural features.  We also designed the floor plan so that all units have unobstructed views to the ocean.  A wooden deck connects all units together, making the primary circulation of the project outdoor, blurring the boundaries between inside and outside.  The garden becomes the house, with rooms spread throughout the landscape.

The project has been featured in many design and architecture websites including,,,, and
