Villa Amanzi was created by design team Original Vision Ltd ( project architects: Adrian McCarroll, Waiman Cheung, Jamie Jamieson) and is located in Kamala Beach, Phuket, Thailand. A heaven for those in need of a quiet way of living, Kamala Beach is a spectacular location, with plenty of things to offer. The defining elements for Villa Amanzi are the view and the rock, according to the architects: They dominate at every juncture. They resonate on first approach, through the migration from public to private space, in the living and in the family areas, in the gardens, in the bedrooms; and they continue to command respect down the tropical jungle steps that arrive at a secluded rock platform, flanked by the same seam that welcomed you 60m above. Constant reference to these elements instills a feeling of solidity that contrasts with the openness of the house, reinforcing the dynamism and vibrancy that pays homage to the magic of the location.
