Design & Concept
Villa Yamu is currently owned by the Architectural Team that built it. KplusK associates are the award-winning international architects for the Bay @ Cape Yamu, they were selected for their fresh approach to contemporary tropical design and their commitment to integrated, functional and sublime architecture. This is an extract of the Architect’s vision for the Villas:
“The development of The Bay @ Cape Yamu creates a new iconic series of structures in which people can enjoy the comfort and beauty of the natural environment of Phuket. Through the extensive innovation of new structural systems, solar technology, married to artistic integrity, each of these individually crafted residences has become a design icon of contemporary tropical Architecture.
The Bay @ Cape Yamu has been designed to maximize the potential of this magnificent site. We have conceived of the villas as modern tropical homes, constructed using the beauty of local materials.
The villas are designed as a series of linked pavilions with landscaped spaces between the dining, cooking, relaxing and sleeping areas. These pavilions are constructed with large areas of sliding glass doors, designed to enhance the connection between outdoor and indoor spaces. High glass facades are created with a double layer of solar shading to allow each room to maximize views to the sea and sky while protecting the interiors from the intensity of the sun.
This sensuality in Architecture also engages directly with the issues of sustainability, energy efficiency and environmental responsibility. The Bay @ Cape Yamu is the realization of this platform, and has culminated in the creation of innovative, sustainable, enduring and subliminal Architecture in Thailand.”
