“The Deck” Condominium is a low rise residential development located by Patong beach in Phuket, one of the most popular tourist destination located on the southern part of Thailand.
The Deck 的建筑设计受当地绵延山脉的自然地景所启发，这种独特的景观「Bukit」，表明普吉岛的自然身份，意指「山群」。
The architectural design of “The Deck” is inspired from the natural geography of the site which is embraced by various mountains. This unique landscape suggests Phuket’s natural identity referring to the term “Bukit”, meaning “Mountains”.
The overall landscape is designed to be encircled by various green mounds and the shades of tall trees which are planted along the winding walkway, resembling the natural scouring of waterways.
From the entrance into the site, the walkway is being gradually elevated through the luscious green mounds which roll from side to side until it finally converges with the 50.5 metre swimming pool. The swimming pool is shaped according to the building’s length and infiltrated into the private balconies of each residence, allowing users to conveniently use the pool.
Furthermore, the swimming pool elegantly camouflages itself amongst the mountainous landscape including the underwater seating and Jacuzzi, blending in well with the pool’s organic shape.
A prominent feature of the landscape design is in the daybeds which is designed to intervene with the green mounds. This is to allow for a clear view towards the swimming pool and the nearby Barbecue area, catering for parties in the evening.
Moreover, the outdoor landscape is designed to correspond with the usage of the building’s interior functions. The exterior walkway in between the buildings is connected to the communal area to invite the residence to come out and relax amidst the carefully designed green luscious landscape. Residents walk on a walkway across the water, reaching the feature tree which acts as the main focal point from the lobby and the fitness room.
Aside from the ground floor, the swimming pool on the 7th floor open up to a 180 degree view of the landscape. The 28.8 metre roof top swimming pool is carefully positioned to be oriented towards the sea and the famous ‘Patong’ beach in order for users to fully absorb the atmospheric identity of Phuket Island.
In order to achieve this, the railings along the rooftop are sunken down to allow for undisrupted views from the wooden deck. The daybeds and the seating complement the admiration of the natural landscape of Phuket’s mountain peaks.
All in all, the landscape design of ‘The Deck’ Condominium significantly considers the conditions of the surrounding environment into the design to bring out the identity of Phuket Island.
