SAVA by Original Vision

From the architect. The client’s brief was to create a Development of luxury family villas on a prime beach front plot of land on the west coast of Phang Nga province at the southern end of Thailand. The houses were to be open and spacious with extensive decks, terraces and lawns.

Sava is located on the beautiful Natai Beach on the west coast of Phang Nga province in Thailand. At a latitude of 8° north, the development enjoys a tropical monsoon climate with wet south-westerlies from April to November and dry north-east winds for the remainder of the year. These near constant breezes are the driving force behind the open living spaces, where the monsoon winds naturally cool by drawing air through the houses. Regulation set-backs have benefited the front villas as there are large lawn areas between the pools and terraces and the sandy beach.

Sava has been built on a green field site 10 minutes by car to the nearest village with no other buildings within its vicinity. Notwithstanding this isolation, the design has used materials that whilst being modern in their usage, have referenced the local vernacular. This has softened the aesthetic of the villa designs making them a very comfortable and contemporary.

The houses sits very comfortably on this essentially flat site with the front villas having activities focused around the swimming pool which is set-back from the beach making it unobtrusive from the waterfront. The houses at the rear of the site are elevated to allow clear views of the Andaman sea.
