Nestled in Vientiane, Laos, the Nalee Villa by Saola Architects is a captivating family home. Designed in 2024, this project masterfully blends function and aesthetics.

A Central Gathering Point

At the heart of the property, a shimmering swimming pool serves as the focal point. Surrounding it, the living room, kitchen, and dining area open up to a generous covered terrace. Across the pool, a sunbathing nook offers a tranquil respite.

Seamless Connectivity

Accessed through a reception area with a patio and a sprawling Champa tree, the main circulation winds around, distributing the various zones. The private areas, including the children’s bedrooms and a multifunctional guest suite, are situated on the second floor, connected by a footbridge.

Elevated Sanctuary

Floating above the garden, the main volume houses the luxurious master suite. Featuring a walk-in closet and a flexible lounge area, the bedroom boasts longitudinal windows with sunshades overlooking the pool and lush greenery. The ensuite bathroom opens up to a patio and the majestic Champa tree.

Outdoor Entertaining

Topping the main volume, a terrace provides the perfect spot for stargazing and hosting guests. Meanwhile, the property’s 3 parking spaces, sheltered by an umbrella-like cover, seamlessly integrate with the overall design.

Blending functionality, comfort, and architectural elegance, the Nalee Villa by Saola Architects offers a harmonious oasis for family living and entertaining.
