The Adrisa Residence, with a total living area of approximately 1,400m2, is located in the exclusive gated community of KAYA Estates on Bophut Hills, one of the most exclusive, private, and lowest density estates in Koh Samui Thailand. It exudes an impressive level of privacy and magnificent ocean and mountain views.
In order to maximize the view, some part of the building is shifted to the second-floor level and the service area also move underground to create an open space on the north-west corner. An open courtyard was inserted in the middle of the house for interior view and create a sequence from the main entrance from the south to the house.
Bedrooms and living area are located on the north-west corner for the best view so the user can enjoy the view surround the site with an L-shape pool which includes a 25 meters lap pool for exercising and a 16 m family pool/Jacuzzi for cooling off that also place in front of the living room. The service area is located on the underground and back of the house.
Since the house is located in the beautiful scenery mountain and Ocean. It enjoys spectacular panoramic Eastern and Northern ocean views with Western mountain views so the designer wants to create a panoramic view without any structure interruption.
To archive that concept, the Designer removes the corner structure in each bedroom and living area to open the panorama view to the magnificent landscape.
Since each room only has 3 structure support point, Structure of the house need a special design. The structure on the underground and first floor is concrete and use a long cantilever at the corner. The second-floor structure is steel and combines into a truss structure in order to have a 7-meter long cantilever and reduce structure at the corner.
