The form is a synthesis of cubistic white volumes, as a contemporary translation of the traditional cubistic architecture found in the villages of Santorini with a clear influence from modernism. The synthesis of the building volumes, the formation of its facades in relation to the orientation and the greenery planting have positive impact to the development of a favorable microclimate of natural shading and cooling during the summer months.

The interior design and the furniture selection are gently integrated to the clean–‐cut concept of the building. The main materials used in the construction is reinforced concrete for the bearing structure, insulated bricks for the walls, white plaster for the coatings, white wooden energy efficient doors & windows, Gortynis grey marble and grey cement plaster for the floors.

Shinichi Ogawa & Associates have designed this stunning seaside villa in Hua Bin Beach, located in the Hua Bin district of Prachuap Khiri Khan province in Thailand. The home covers an area of over 970 square feet and was completed in 2017. The home is intended to be a weekend home where to spend some leisure time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and it is fortunate enough to be a mere 300 meters away from the main street to the beach.

The home includes six bedrooms, one for each of the six members of the resident family to use for individual activities. Each is distributed as an individual space, with tall glass walls that allow natural light, as well as the views of the beach, to enter the room. The first space, upon entrance, is a living room, minimally decorated in light tones, to enhance the airy atmosphere of the interior.

Beyond is a bed, and upstairs, a bathroom perched upon a loft reached by narrow stairs. There are also areas for outdoor dining, outdoor living, a pool, a gym, a sauna, and a kitchen, where they can all spend time together as a family if they so choose.

A small extension is built in front of the façade of the second house. In front of the two houses there is a yard with two pools, that is higher than the pedestrian level and their entrances.

The yard can be used as one, or can be divided into two private parts, through a sliding door that runs all the width of it.

The house on the left side is about 110sq.m. and it consists of a sitting area, a kitchen with a dining area, a small bedroom with a bathroom, the main bedroom with its bathroom, a ‘shower’ area, a sauna, a hammam and a space for massage and relaxation.

In the second house on the right side, there are a kitchen with a dining area in the front, a sitting area, the main bedroom and the wardrobes as an open space and a bathroom on the back of it, approximately 70sq.m.

The intention of the project was to create two totally different cave houses, that are almost opposing to each other. The longer cave house on the left side has been designed as a primitive, minimal and sculptural space.

Sharp lines and volumes are contrasting with the smooth curves of the cave house, creating an odd sense of the space. These tectonic volumes could be the leftovers of the soil removal from the cave in a more dynamic way shaping a kind of ‘’labyrinth’’. The use of similar color palette and materiality onto the floor and the walls forms a continuity of the interior space bringing out the curves and the random forms of the cave.

The curved walls in some parts are like thin layers of ‘’skin’’ that can be illuminated with a wide range of colors. Most of the furniture are built, in order to become part of that ‘cocoon’.

The sensuous and mystical space is completed with some pieces of furniture by marble and wood, with diverse proportions and primary shapes.

The second house has a different approach. Main idea of the design was to convert the old cave into a futuristic, innovative space, attempting to push the limits of the space to a breaking point. The marks of the cave are obvious, as the soil of the earth, as appeared through the excavation, is maintained. A construction of shady mirror, covers two of the sides of the main space, offering a different perspective to the space.
