The architectural concept for this project is established by the two impressions taken place once the design team visited the existing site for the first time. The first memorable scene was the beauty of nature as the site is located in a fertile forest with plenty of vegetations and shady trees where some sunlight could penetrate between the dense tree branches and leaves creating green shadows moving on the ground. Another attractive natural element was also impressive, such as tree roots and green moss found on the concrete floors and on the different sizes of the rocks around that area. The beautiful nature has become one of the unique characters that the architects determined to emphasize in this resort. In doing so, a ‘tropical rainforest’, which commonly discovered in that region, has been set as a substantial guideline for expressly reflecting the mood of living among nature. Also, it has been found that a forest has a general structure of four layers starting from the ground level and shifting up and this structure has been applied to place emphasize on the mood of relaxation in the forest. The four layers in a forest are illustrated as follows; • ‘Forest Floor’ contains several small plants such as moss and fern, as well as roots of large trees spreading out over a wide area. Furthermore, on the floor there is a thin layer of fallen natural components from the above layers comprising of leaves, branches, fruits, and seeds. • ‘Understorey’ is a layer between the layer of ‘Canopy’ and the ‘Forest Floor’. Trunks of large trees, medium and small trees, shrubs, as well as vines and climbers hanging over tree branches are commonly found in this layer. • ‘Canopy’ is an upper layer for densely overlapping tree branches and leaves, and these could resemble the roof of a forest. • ‘Emergent Layers’ is the first layer from the top of a forest. In this layer, there are several towering trees intervening over the dense of leaves in the ‘Canopy’ layer. The other impression was the remarkable folk culture in that region presenting in the style of the vernacular architecture, a variety of local materials in the existing buildings, and the unique folk manner of the local people. This impression has become the other mood raised by the architects. Therefore, keeping nearly all of the existing structure and form of the buildings has been one of the design goals. Also, the refreshed materials have been mainly selected to be natural and local, such as wood and timber, rammed earth, and wickerwork or basketry with a local glasslike plant in the sedge family named ‘Krachoot’. On top of that, the distinctive pattern of the manner or the way that the native people sit or lay down has also turned to be the direction for furniture and space design. In conclusion, the architectural concept is the combination of both impressions revealed above. Therefore, the first priority in the design approach is that the fertile land and the cultural context have to be still unchanged and more value of both aspects have to be increased at the same time. It is believed that these could contribute not only to the particular moods of this project but also to the preservation of both natural elements and extraordinary folk culture in that area.
