The resort is located on a small hill near a river within a calm environment just outside Vietnam’s  Nha Trang city. Its round thatched -roof courtyard is used as a quite space and climate regulator. It provides a great amount of shadow and natural ventilation, which is very important due to the hot and humid Vietnamese weather.
Instead of using glue or screws, A21 Studio collaborated with an experienced craftsman that built all wooden structures using mortise and tenon joints . These types of joints are strong, neat and very durable, giving the overall project a high-quality long-lasting structure. I Resort covers 3,200 square feet of space, offering visitors a place filled with harmony, health, and sustainable design.
