Build area: 1460m2
Whilst providing privacy from the neighbouring properties, the brutalist entry facade was designed to give the user an element of intrigue and surprise when passing through the entry threshold. Four identical guest rooms are elevated above the arrival walkway, which gives users entering the building the feeling of openness whilst also providing visual connection to the adjacent rice fields.
In the centre of the villa is a standout feature – a large open-air folly with sculptural openings that provide dynamic views to the surrounding space and that allow for dramatic lighting changes throughout the day. There, hanging above a still reflection pond is a frangipani tree that’s suspended from the structure, seemingly defying gravity.
As you enter further into the villa the main guest areas connect the kitchen, dining, living and entertainment spaces. There is also designed a 30m long infinity pool with sunken bar, and master suite on the upper level with a sunken rooftop lounge and terrace.
