Original Vision Limited completes twelve terraced duplex apartments in Phuket
Alanna Yamu sits on a gentle south facing slope overlooking Sapham Bay at Cape Yamu on the east coast of Phuket Island in Thailand. It is a collection of twelve terraced duplex apartments that provide open contemporary family living in an intimate environment. Split into a bedroom floor and an entertainment level, each unit has been designed as a comfortable and spacious vacation home.
On the lower level the concept focuses on openness and has been accentuated by a clear span frontage of nine metres. This allows the open plan indoor living and kitchen space to be fully integrated with a deep outdoor terrace and private infinity edge swimming pool.
The open plan concept extends to the upper floor sleeping areas, particularly the master bedroom. It has a dedicated full width terrace and a generously appointed open style bathroom. Architecturally, the terraced massing reduces the impact to the communal garden area and creates a very friendly interface.
Materials have been selected into a tight palette of steel, glass, concrete and slate. The emphasis has been to make these apartments low maintenance whilst maintaining the allure and harmony of a tropical resort.
