  • Renowned Thai architecture and planning firm focused on modern works that fuse contemporary elements with regional, traditional motifs
  • Wide-ranging selection of luxury resort projects spanning Thailand, the Maldives, and Vietnam

Habita Architects is a visionary Thai architectural design firm whose opus of work over several decades has grown into a collective of projects of various sizes and scales. Yet despite their diversity, the works have been decisively bound within the typological genre of the luxury resort hotel. Blending elements of Thai regionalism and indigenous architectural character with solid programmatic functions, Habita Architects strives to create meaningful and cohesive hotel and resort designs of subtle, understated elegance. Shown throughout in full-colour photography, these pages explain Habita's approach to luxury resort design, which is apparent in the well-integrated architecture and interior designs of the firm's projects, stretching throughout Thailand and neighbouring countries. Fully illustrated in sumptuous detail, Hotel and Resort Design showcases the combination of the natural and built environments as a delicate entity with its own character, history, and future. Habita details how technology and innovation marry with the site and overall landscape, and how it is the site's spatial suroundings that ultimately determines whether the accommodation is perched on the side of a rain-forested valley, suspended above an atoll lagoon, or set back at the rear of a tranquil paddy field. Expertise in both historic Thai architecture and conventional Modernist pedagogy provides work that delivers a guest experience inspired by the natural environment and especially the culture of that place. The synergy of Habita's work results in a thoughtfulness towards heritage and a consciously considered approach towards innovation.
