the ‘chi-bu’ resort by o9 design studio comprises seven bungalows overlooking the river and wild gardens, as well as a riverfront restaurant-bar, and a freshwater swimming pool. the bungalows are designed to harvest the natural light and distribute it evenly around the rooms. symbiosis with the verdant landscape is achieved blurring the boundary between exterior and interior, generating a sense of boundlessness, increasingly hard to come by in the verticality of the city.o9 design studio forge an affinity between untamed landscape and architectural design 2

 

 

broad, hinged patio doors fully open to extend the rooms towards the river’s edge, without reducing floorspace. traditional bamboo ladders invite guests to take a dip in the secluded stretch of the river. outdoor shower rooms host tropical plant beds, with the foliage being framed by internal bedroom windows. meanwhile, high ceilings maximize daylight and fresh air circulation.o9 design studio forge an affinity between untamed landscape and architectural design 9

 

 

the restaurant is toped by a tall pyramid-shaped ceiling, covered with handcrafted shichito matgrass panels and punctuated by ornate palm leaf blade ceiling fans. handmade tiles employ striking geometric motifs, responding to traditional rattan weaving patterns of the mekong river, while the roofs are locally thatched using coconut palm leaves.o9 design studio forge an affinity between untamed landscape and architectural design 10

 

 

furniture, windows, shutters, door frames and joinery were all custom-designed by by o9 design studio, and fabricated with native wood, bamboo and rattan by local artisans. the overarching concepts of clarity, comfort and expansiveness are accentuated in the thoughtful choices of furnishings and fittings. the bond between untamed landscape and architectural design forges a haven where nature is highlighted as the protagonist.o9 design studio forge an affinity between untamed landscape and architectural design 8o9 design studio forge an affinity between untamed landscape and architectural design 3o9 design studio forge an affinity between untamed landscape and architectural design 5
