VALA Huahin — Nu Chapter Hotels

Best Implemented Landscape Architecture Project

About the project
Impressed by the number of existing mature trees at site as well as the hotel’s philosophy in sustainability, landscape architect intentionally managed to preserve and enhance the natural heritage with the proposed design. Therefore, tree observation was rendered at site by landscape architect for the accurate positions with the numbering system to generate the base plan and supported data.
The level changes are strategically created to enhance the relationship between the existing topography and the proposed design. The result is to enhance the guest's experience as well as define the hierarchy of space.
The landscape design takes the advantage of the site orientation to the east-west by enhancing the visual perception of natural light, shade, and shadow with the landscape elements. The mesmerizing visual effects created by natural light are dominantly created at all times.
