Chenglu Villa is an incredible sea-side development situated within a private estate in Lingshui County, south-east of Hainan Island. GAD Architects have put a heavy focus on extracting ocean views from almost every aspect of the house, which was a main priority for the owners. Large open living spaces define the centre of the house, offering perfect indoor/outdoor rooms for dining and relaxing. The pool wraps and flows around the house, visually connecting the building with the coastal surroundings, while large areas of grass bring a touch of organic feel to the otherwise rigid design.
Obviously this is a very large house, the design however remains intimate and detailed beautifully. Mixes of timber, stone and concrete keep the palette very neutral while highlighting the green landscape and bright blue pool. All in all, this is a house that we’d all love to call home.
