In the town of Sanya, on Hainan Island in the South China Sea, a residential touristic complex is being planned. The complex host the summer residences and four buildings constituting the resort, the buildings share the same language through the use of materials like wood and glass. The project of these villas has its key point in the strong identity of the buildings, which interact both with each other and the rich nature of the surrounding area. The internal spaces are distributed around a huge relax and social area on the ground floor; the rooms are independent and at the same time connected. Particular attention has been paid to landscape design: the green becomes a natural extension of the internal rooms.
