In order to achieve that, all design processes from factors as planning building settings to selecting materials must collaborate together. The project’s layout is designed to scatter each function due to hierarchy in seeing view. First of all, the designer locates lobby at the lowest part of the land where barely sees the views then the path slowly leading guests up to the main facility areas, including all-day dining and swimming pools, where are the most beautiful points.

During the way up, the spectacular scenario is gradually revealed to guests. At the top of the land stands the guest room building. Every room is rotated forty five degree from building’s axis for maximizing the view. This also create privacy and entrance tree court for each room.

开放式庭院的设计也同样适用于别墅。别墅是特别按照地形的轮廓来水平排布的，在每套房的中心区域有一个户外淋浴间，客人在雨季和冬季都能于此感受到著名的雾气。除此之外，客人还可以在别墅前部名为De Capoc的弹簧床式网格区域放松休闲。正如它的名字那样，西班牙单词De Capoc代表的是木棉树的纤维状物质。

Similarly, the idea of opening court applies to the villas as well; there is an outdoor shower space at the center of the villa allowing guests to feel the famous mist in rainy and winter seasons. The villas are intentionally arranged following the natural contour level. In addition, guests can experience relaxed siting and laying on the net, in front of the villas, as its name, De Capoc, a spanish word meaning a fibrous substance of the ceiba tree.

To add more characteristics of Kho trees which are the origin of the area name, Khaokho meaning the mountains with full of Kho trees, the pattern of diagonal lines in the tree’s leaf is taken to design several parts in the resort. For the material issues, the color which is painted throughout the project is first mixed with the soil remaining from the underground construction. Its extraordinary orange-red color along with the pine wood harmoniously blend all buildings with the surrounding nature.
