Captivating Exterior: A Tropical Modern Facade

The villa’s exterior emanates a striking presence, with its rectangular, box-like form adorned with a rhythmic pattern of long louvre window frames.

This holistic design approach creates a serene and rejuvenating atmosphere, where the family can gather, share stories, and immerse themselves in the beauty of their natural environment.

Functional and Inviting Interiors

The interior spaces of the Nha Tran Villa exude a refined yet welcoming ambiance, with the use of raw concrete and natural wood materials evoking a sense of warmth and approachability. The kitchen features a sleek and functional layout, complete with ample counter space and a seamless connection to the adjacent dining area. The bedrooms, designed with the homeowners’ children in mind, offer privacy and comfort, while still maintaining a strong link to the communal living spaces and the lush surrounding landscape.

A Sanctuary for Mind and Body

One of the villa’s standout features is the reading and yoga area, nestled within a container box on the second floor. This unique, off-angled placement adds a dynamic and visually compelling element to the architecture, while also providing a tranquil space for the homeowners to unwind and engage in their mindful practices.

The Nha Tran Villa is a true testament to the harmonious integration of modern design and tropical sensibilities. By dedicating nearly 60% of the property to nature, the Butecco team has created a captivating oasis that celebrates the symbiotic relationship between the built environment and the natural world, offering its residents a serene and rejuvenating living experience.
