The project is located on a sloping half-hill of Samui Island, Thailand with 180 degrees of sea view, covers an area of 6561.3 square meters, and the proposed total construction area of 5,300 square meters. The architectural form of the project resembles that of a butterfly resting and flapping its wings. The buildings twist freely and adapt to each other along the mountain. Considering the landscape vision and the privacy between the villas, 270-degree wide-angle lighting is achieved while the villas are cleverly blocked between themselves and keep with the view.
