Urban Design for an Exceptional Beach Resort in Thailand

Casa de la Flora is an exceptional beach resort with beautiful urban design and contemporary architecture. Designed by  VaSLab Architecture, this unique retreat is nestled among an oasis of natural serenity, directly on the beautiful beach of Khao Lak, Thailand on the shore of the Andaman Sea. With its cutting edge architecture and idyllic tropical backdrop,  Casa de la Flora is perfect for those in search of privacy in unspoiled surroundings.The new project is a 36 amazing villa resort which  has for each of these cubic homes the best view of the beach as possible. Angular but never piercing, each monolithic villa fosters the architects’ objective to obscure any barriers between guests and their surrounding location. Offering all the luxuries of a urban hotel: spa, gym, swimming pool, pool bar, beachfront top-class restaurant,  library, the resort has a nice balance between privacy and the facilitation of socialization with other travellers.

Most villas are buttressed by topiary conceived by landscape designers T.R.O.P, while all feature a private pool and secluded patios or balconies. Natural materials such as teakwood temper the minimalist interiors, augmented by monochromatic schemes and lighting designed by APLD. In the bathrooms meanwhile, beige Italian quartz sets the stage for ample bathtubs offering an alternative to outdoor rains showers. Architects accomplished to create a dialogue between the resort and its enchanting backdrop, accomplished by opening-up the space through partially uncovered public areas and the invitation of indigenous plant life into the fore. What could be more beautiful and relaxing than wake up with a view of the rolling waves?!
