Located on eight acres of virgin beach coast on the Gulf of Thailand, the X2 Resort Kui Buri Bungalow is meant to harmonize with its surroundings of undisturbed greenery and calm fishing villages. Kuiburi is a small remote beach city located in the southern part of Thailand, known by few and valued for its tranquil beaches and beautiful surroundings. Drawing upon the site’s natural beauty, the architect Duangrit Bunnag created a resort that seeks to be harmonious with its environment, both in terms or architecture and the use of building materials. As such, natura, ecology and simplicity were fundamental themes in X2’s design. Following this principle, local granite stone and wood were used as the primary raw materials, and at least 95% to pass through the property easily, using natural ventilation to help reduce the overall energy consumption of the resort. – Via – Coolboom
