MIA Design Studio has completed one more venture at the Naman Retreat in Vietnam: a series of vacation villas featuring rooftop pools that surround sunken lounges .
Found on the coastline amongst the city of Da Nang and the historic town of Hoi An, the five-star vacation resort currently attributes plant-covered day spa and hotel buildings, as properly as quite a few leisure amenities.
MIA Layout Studio was tasked with establishing 1 of 4 residence patterns that will make up the Naman Residences – villas that will be put up for sale, but whose owners can supply them up for quick-term lets for the vast majority of the year.
Named Garden Villas, this layout is a two-storey residence divided up into a massive and a small wing.
The building’s most unusual feature is a shallow pool that surrounds an outdoor living area on the roof of the smaller wing. It is accessed using a bridge that extends across from the very first floor of the opposite block.
The use of water was an essential component of the design notion, according to the architects, and functions as a organic cooling technique properly suited to Vietnam’s tropical climate.
“We put waterscape into the rooftop of the decrease block in order to amazing down the whole creating and boost the rooftop landscape aesthetically,” said the crew.

There is also a more traditional swimming pool in the backyard, tucked away at the rear to supply as considerably privacy as achievable to residents, and a courtyard pool at the centre of the web site.
This layout also solved another problem – despite currently being shut to the popular Non Nuoc Seaside, there are no direct views from the website to the sea, so they client’s short had been to recreate a “beach feeling” in the homes.
The bigger of the two blocks accommodates the bedrooms – 3 in complete – along with a sauna, bathrooms and storage regions. The smaller block consists of just one particular room, a combined living area, dining location and kitchen.
“Not also difficult, the layout uses the most standard concept of area – creating voids,” stated the group. “Splitting those villas into two separate spaces: a single far more quiet and soothing, with a view to the horizon of the seashore one more practical with terraces and landscapes.”
Massive expanses of glazing characteristic on the two sides of the property, enabling views among rooms. The rest of the exterior is either rendered white or clad with locally sourced slate.
“The design of the home is simple and sleek, so the value for construction is not so high,” additional the staff.
The Garden Villa is the second design for the Naman Residences, following the Beachfront Villa. Two more are also proposed, and all 4 are meant to be hurricane-proof.
Visitor points of interest are springing up in Vietnam, as the country capitalises on the development of its tourism sector. Other latest tasks by MIA Design and style Studio contain the Naman Spa and a waterside park in Qui Nhon.
