Set on high, steep and densely wooded land overlooking the sunset views on the west of the popular holiday island in the gulf of Thailand. Lime comprises a collection of 16 luxury villas derived from 3 basic prototypes (subject to amendments/customisation by owners).
The site’s topography ensures every villa is able to maximize the views available whilst enjoying the highest standards of design, privacy and luxury. In addition to either 3, 4 or 5 bedrooms, each property also features a gym, study and extensive poolside “salas “ which increase the living spaces dramatically. Roofs are, as usual designed to maximize the drama of entry with a combination of reflecting pools and planters whilst offering passive thermal cooling to help reduce the dependence on mechanical ventilation. GFAB were commissioned to undertake the master planning, creation of 3 “prototypes” (designs) and execution of the first 2 villas (only).
