the construction intends to marry architecture and nature. titled the project ‘tsubomi villas’, a name that translates from japanese to mean ‘flower bud’ — a form that is showcased in the hyperbolic paraboloid roof canopy. this delicate screen would be fabricated using layers of overlapping wood, protecting the villas in a way that privacy and openness can coexist.

in turn, this organic and blossoming structure corresponds to the existing topography, tropical climate, with the interior design following a similar sympathetic relationship evident in the exterior. the surrounding landscape will turn into a sprawling garden to include water features, local vegetation, high palm trees, and layers of flowers.
