In general, by using wood, rock, and local coconut leaf, lively materials, i-resort is filled with harmony and native feelings. Adding to the main context, lotus ponds, gourd and flower gardens have softened typical sun in this tropical city. Refer to the architecture, courtyard and mortise and tenon joint are particular highlighted through out buildings.
Courtyard, as we know, is the result of cultural and climatic conditions in the region. Further more, the courtyard is also used as spatial generator and climate modifier. In this project, we organized the spaces flexibly so that they can adapt many functions and views in the buildings. As the result, the activities are taken place in the peace and quiet places. Moreover, it allows solar gain and natural ventilation, which are suitable to Vietnam climate. However, overusing courtyards can increase the heat and brightness causing inconvenience to people. Inner gardens, roof materials and fenestration are carefully considered as the most appropriate solutions.
Nowadays, wood structure usually uses glue, nail or prefabricated connectors to link different components. Thus, the way that we use mortise and tenon joints can be judged as a new adoption to architecture. These joints are easy to assemble and the connections are very strong, neat, and hard to be wobbled. In addition, most of the joints is hidden in the structure and this technique can be scaled up or down in size.
The project is now constructed the second stage, which promisingly brings more exciting works.
