Thai villa with breathe-taking sea views
Thai villa on Koh Samui with breathe-taking sea views across the Gulf of Thailand and beyond
A wonderful opportunity to redesign an existing, tired Thai villa garden, set on the side of a hill, with large feature rocks both externally and internally. All of the metal railings are replaced with glass balustrading, and extend above the car port for a large chill-out zone. A pool and jacuzzi add to the topical feel. A new step-free access route will be created to the studio on the ground floor, while steps lead up to the villa accommodation. All locally-sourced, native plants are incorporated into the existing planting, with no need for an irrigation system. Shallow steps lead down to a grassed area, with a fire pit and pleached trees for screening.
This is a private Thai villa and through the use of terracing and rendered walls painted a soft grey to match the colours of the distant horizon, different levels are created. Mood lighting brings the garden to life, while locally-sourced sculpture by craftsmen and women add to the Thai experience.
A large rain-water harvesting tank, hidden from sight, collects rain, which is then re-used in the villa. Secret areas around the villa are the perfect spot for yoga and meditation. Verdant planting with bright colours from flowers, and fruit trees such as mango, banana, lime, papaya and bitter orange create the perfect tropical oasis.
There is a real outside-inside feel, as two sides of the villa are glass-curtain walling and slide back to allow cool breezes to dodge this way and that. Large houseplants will create a further verdant backdrop to a modernised, yet truly Thai villa.
