Description, Philosophy, History

Description:
Interior Designer Christina Saenz de Santamaria is one of the leading designers in Australia. Her works feature tropical asian modern designs. She created 5 luxury villas: Villa of the Rising Sun, Villa of the Blue Sea, Villa of Green Palms, Villa of a Million Stars in the resort Casas del Sol.
Philosophy:
In "Casas del Sol", Saenz embraced a new concept known as ‘Boutique Beach Chic’, which means understated luxury within a modern tropical design that captures the sensory island experience of sea, sun and stars.Christina Saenz de Santamaria's design blends both the indoor and outdoor environments together with the use of an outdoor terrace and open-plan living. Natural ventilation plays an important element for cooling in the tropical heat with high ceilings, windows and large terrace doors.A major style influence to the villas was the Mediterranean culture due to villa ownership from Spain. The crisp white walls and use of polished concrete is a direct echo of the modernized fincas of the Spanish Balearic Islands. Care was taken to incorporate local Thai elements such as native timber details and products.
