we architecture: TT-villa


we architecture‘s TT-villa was designed to optimize the surroundings in which it is situated.
located in phuket, thailand, the aim was to design a building where both interior and exterior
has equal contact to nature and sea, an oasis in a tropical surrounding with the commodities
of modern living. the residence is west facing, hillside near the sea built partly carved into the rock.
the building steps down the hill providing interior and exterior access between the entrance
at the top and the beach below. along these paths, the layout of the house provides terraces
connected to the various rooms of the building and where nature has the ability to grow
unobstructed between the volumes of the villa.

the house is divided into three floors. the top floor, near the entrance, is the one which functions
more as a public, communal space. throughout the middle there are semi-private rooms,
with the lower level housing the mots private spaces. by offsetting the three floors, they have
created additional terraces. rotating the floors opens up the house towards the sea and maximizes
these outdoor areas.

rather than having a backside as a traditional cliff side villa, the building is placed in such a way
that there are views both towards the sea and the green rocky slope. the vegetation grows
between the different floors of the building making the inside and outside flow into one another.
opening up the villa’s blinding system completely, gives you picturesque views, transforming your
living, dining or bedroom into covered terraces.
