La Habana, a new resort-like condominium is only 250 meters from the ocean and nearby the Cicada and Tamarind night markets. La Habana design inspired by “Eclectic design” of Classic Spanish Colonial architecture and the vibrant colours of Havana City in Cuba.
The unique identity makes the project a “Remarkable” low-rise condominium in the Heart of Hua Hin.
The first approach of La Habana is a Havana cafe style lobby, while the “Rusted steel Arch Colonnades” is used to represent the “Rustic European” architecture concept of the country rich history.
La Habana design concept demonstrated the Havana city atmosphere by the overall European façade elements with colourful tinted. The resort-like condominium starts from breaking the building mass due to the flow of ventilation, sunlight, comfortable space and various activities courtyard.
