2019 WAN Awards: Thailand Samui Butterfly Villa- GWP Architects is an entry in the Future Project - Mixed Use category at the 2019 World Architecture News Awards.
Thailand Samui Butterfly Villa is located on Samui Island, Thailand and covers 5,300 sqm
The design scopes include planning design, architectural design and circulation design and it's currently under construction with completion expected in December, 2019. Chief Architects: John Zhang, Tina Wang and designers are Jackal Luo, Ben Huang, Victor Ruan, Allen liang, Dana Liu.
The project is located on a sloping half-hill of Samui Island, Thailand. It has a 180-degree sea view and covers an area of 6561.3 square meters. The architectural form of the project resembles that of a butterfly resting and waving its wings.The buildings twist freely along the mountain and adapt to each other. Considering the landscape vision and the privacy between the villas, 270-degree wide-angle lighting is achieved while the villas are cleverly blocked with themselves and keep with the view. Located on the Coppala Mountains in the north of Samui Island, Thailand, the project is at a higher place and enjoys aclear open view of the sea. The design concept is inspired from the unique butterfly of Samui Island, extracted from the dynamic butterfly flying motion, becoming the figure of the building. At the same time, the landscape is widened, bringing unique vision to each building.
Artistic forms of every detail through the buildings creates a high-quality space effect. To meet various needs, there have been set at least 6 bedrooms.
