The Library Resort in Koh Samui

The Library is a resort in Koh Samui, Thailand, where designer Tirawan Songsawat created a minimalist structure while intruding as little as possible on the site by building around old-growth trees. Guests may lose themselves among vegetation interspersed with artwork and statuary, contrasting a colour scheme in which white, red, black and grey predominate: the Library’s exterior is white, the swimming pool red, the restaurant grey. Interiors follow the same ultra minimalist palette and feature low-slung, rectilinear furnishings that invite visitors to stretch out and listen to the lapping of the waves – or of course dive into the books in the exemplary namesake library.
