Nestled on a hill overlooking the stunning Nha Trang Bay, the Timber House is a resort-style wooden villa that embodies elegance and tranquility. Designed by the renowned MM+ Architects, this 420m2 property offers unparalleled views of the sea, with the bay and mountains serving as a breathtaking backdrop. Let’s take a closer look at this architectural masterpiece that harmoniously blends nature and modern design.
Preserving the Ocean View
One of the main challenges faced during the design process was overcoming the high construction density in Nha Trang. To ensure an unobstructed ocean view, the architects meticulously planned and executed the layout. By strategically positioning the villa and adhering to local urban regulations, they successfully optimized the residents’ visual experience while preserving the natural beauty of the surroundings.
Ultimate Relaxation and Entertainment
Designed as a vacation rental, the Timber House offers an unmatched entertainment experience. The villa maximizes storage capacity while providing ample space for leisure and relaxation. The entrance from the main street features a staircase that leads to the upper floor, setting the stage for an unforgettable stay in this architectural marvel.
The Perfect Vantage Point
Perched on a large “podium” within the city, the Timber House boasts an elevated position that grants an unobstructed view of the sea. The pool, located above ground and designed with three overflow sides, not only adds a touch of luxury but also creates a visual connection to the captivating seascape. The house itself consists of two main elements: a glazed front with a soaring ceiling, providing panoramic views of the ocean and hills, and a suspended wooden box with openable windows.
A Multi-Level Haven
The Timber House seamlessly integrates with its natural surroundings, utilizing the terrain to its advantage. The villa is structured across multiple levels, each offering a distinct purpose. The street-level floor houses a garage, a spacious home theater with an underwater window illuminating the pool area, as well as technical space and a spa. The middle floor features a cliff-facing bedroom with a private garden and an open-air bathroom. Finally, the roof showcases a remarkable space that merges the dining room, kitchen, and living room into a single, unified area. With its high ceiling, the roof also provides the opportunity for an additional mezzanine bedroom, offering panoramic views of the kitchen and its surroundings. The first floor contains two bedrooms within the main wooden box.
A Harmonious Blend of Materials
To connect the Timber House with nature and enhance its suspended effect, locally sourced stone blocks are used in its construction. The teak cladding on the first floor exudes elegance and completes the captivating aesthetic of the villa. The harmonious blend of materials creates a truly remarkable architectural masterpiece.
