The residential development with 28 villas spreads along Cheung Sha Beach on Lantau Island. Embraced by the pristine woods, almost all villas in the project faces southeast, which allows residents to take full advantage of the stunning views of the horizon. The cascading arrangement optimises the ratio of mountain and water scenery – residents can get the best of both worlds.
The contemporary villas are designed in collaboration with PDP London. Each emphasises an open plan that connects the interior and exterior, which also encourages cross ventilation. The façade is a series of shifting planes with wood panels that breaks up the façade rhythm and frames the exterior view. The clubhouse with a large pool is located at the heart of the development; its façade design echoes that of the villas, creating an open pavilion.
