Bluepoint Sales Pavilion / Paul Raff Studio

Located in Phuket, Thailand, Paul Studio Architects Bluepoint Sales Pavilion provides a space for potential clients to enjoy the surrounding views.  The elegant wooden structure gracefully compliments the landscape by “responding to the powerful contextual site conditions.”

More about the residence after the break.

Initially inspired by the region’s primary inhabitants, the nomadic fishermen, the form recalls the Thai fishermen’s construction method evolution.  Curving timber over a gunnel framework, the fishermen can construct simple vessels for their trade.  “Their beautiful flowing forms exist as an iconic regional aesthetic. Using an innovative wood product combined with the traditional geometric techniques of ship building, the pavilion generates a unique dynamic configuration,” explained the architects.  A continuous wrapping wood canopy extends past the façade framing panoramic views of the lush surroundings.  The design effect is simple and yet adds a touch of elegance to the pavilion.
