The so called VIP villa forms part of the Mia Beach resort on which Gfab consulted in 2008 and at over 2000m2 is intended both for events and as a residential villa for the resorts owners.
The villa sits at the top of a steep cliff face and cantilevers out over the drop to the beach far below, offering panoramic views over Camh Ranh bay. The accommodation includes spa and gym, 20 seat cinema, 2 studies (his and hers) children’s play room, 5 bedrooms and full service kitchen and support accommodation. Upon entry, a large reflecting pool organizes the circulation which passes a wall made up of lacquer paneling and featuring niches for artifacts.
The main living areas feature timber lined ceilings of 5m height and a dramatic feature wall clad in book matched marble bisects the room and is lit from a skylight above which has water running over it to reduce solar gain. Whilst the interior furniture selections are by others, the whole design is constructed from very high spec materials throughout and its unusual and dramatic positioning have earned it the sobriquet of “the James Bond Villa” locally.
