I WELLNESS

To mitigate the challenge of the existing inclined boundary wall, parallel walls to the house were created thus to incorporate activities (be it the facilities, the pantry) in addition to a pool bar and an outdoor seating area oriented towards the lagoon. Bordered by water, a fluid continuity reins throughout the entire site and culminates in the glistening waters of the adjoining lagoon. The Pearl Villa is the ideal replica of an endless interplay of the various hues of blue which procures a timeless feeling and wellness.
