KOH SAMUI, Thailand 6'500 sqm 2019

Kapuhala Koh Samui Tropical Farm and Training Retreat is a new boutique resort on Samui Island, featuring 5 luxury tent residences and 4 independent Seaview “farmhouses”, all with a breathtaking view of Chaweng Noi, one of the island’s most beautiful beach. The possibility of re-establishing a strong connection between human and nature was the main idea that guided the Area-17 Architecture & Interiors project, whose approach was focused on annulling the perception of the detachment between the serene outdoor environment and the comfort of indoor spaces.
