Serving as the sales office for the Bluepoint Residences in Phuket, Thailand, the Bluepoint Sales Pavilion provides an ideal lounge setting for potential clients to enjoy spectacular views while reviewing development plans and observing construction progress. The pavilion’s expression responds to the powerful contextual site conditions. A deep terrace and continuous wrapping canopy extend outward toward a look-out point, framing a spectacular panoramic vista.
The Pavilion’s form is inspired by the region’s first known inhabitants: nomadic fisherman who worked and lived on their boats. Today, Thai fishermen continue to construct simple vessels by curving lengths of timber over a gunnel framework. These beautiful flowing forms exist as an iconic regional aesthetic. Innovatively using a sustainable wood-composite material arrayed by the traditional geometric techniques of ship building, the pavilion generates a unique dynamic configuration.
