  • About Firm
    BAI Design International (BAIDI) was established in London in 2009 as a RIBA Chartered Practice. Our core design philosophy consists of two parts: cultural narrative + technology in symbiosis with nature. We are concerned about the sustainability of the city and hope to continue the regional culture through creativity. Our areas of expertise include: healthcare, culture, resort, and urban planning.

The project is a resort hotel that combines a private beach clubhouse and hotel apartments. The hotel apartments are tucked away in lush greenery. From the stepped-up rooftop pool and terrace one can look across or into the distance. The design uses transparent acrylic across the open views of the roof to create a infinity sky pool. The open space between the building blocks is designed to bring natural light and ventilation into the building interiors for health and energy efficiency purposes. The community gardens between the buildings provide an essential outdoor extension to resort living.
