Casa De La Flora (Hotel) by Vasu Virajsilp
2017 - 2018, Golden A' Architecture, Building and Structure Design Award Winner
Vaslab’s metaphorical design takes on the act of ‘arising flora’, where each concrete versus wood villa reflects as a flora form, emerges from the ground, and blooms to reach the daylight. Deviated walls and tilted roofs are characterized throughout the series of 36 cubic-form villas, where these tapered elements do not only recall the act of arising flora but they widen the rooms’ perspective frames when looking outward to the sea.
Casa de La Flora, the Design Hotels member in Thailand, is the 36 cube-shaped pool villa resort located in Khao Lak, Phangnga. Designed by Vaslab Architecture, this beachfront resort was aimed to revive Khao Lak community after Tsunami in 2004 and to serve as a new high profile but yet humble destination hotel. Facilities include reception lounge, swimming pool, pool bar, beachfront restaurant, spa, fitness, and library.
