An architecturally stunning retreat in the evergreen rainforests of Phuket, Keemala combines the style of ancient Thai tribe dwellings with modern, whimsical design, immersing guests in serenity and wellbeing.
Built in harmony with the local culture, history, and nature, the resort offers accommodation in four types of units, all ingeniously planned and complete with private terraces and dramatic indoor/outdoor bathrooms. Perhaps the most spectacular are the We-ha (Sky) Clan-inspired Tree Pool Houses, which come complete with suspended furniture and cocoon like beds, or the opulent Bird’s Nest Villas, with their generous glass walls overlooking the mountains and the Andaman Sea.
Set among trees and waterfalls, the spa’s 8 treatment pavilions offer everything from healing Thai therapies to rejuvenating massages. Dining at the resort is an equally holistic experience, focusing on Healthy Living Cuisine.
In the rural area north of Utrecht a compact recreation house has been realized. The house is constructed in wood and opens its façade with window shutters towards the green garden. The design has been realized by a special collaboration between Zecc and interior designer Roel van Norel. Zecc designed the basic concept of the house and then Roel van Norel has developed the plan all the way into the smallest detail and has built the house together with the contractor.

In the Flemish farmlands,
Flanders, Belgium, on a parcel fringed with pollard willows and surrounded by swamps, a pond and shrubbery, a typical north – south oriented farmhouse is situated. It’s character is strikingly honest and straightforward. Its surroundings evoke tranquillity, simplicity and memory.

MIMA Light MIMA
MIMA Light is the ultimate achievement in modular construction, combining an outstanding lightness with an iconic and minimal image. This home seems to levitate above the ground due to the lining of the base with mirrors.
Inspired by the minimalist sculpture of artists such as Donald Judd, John McCracken and Robert Morris, the new MIMA Light aims to be epitome of sophistication, synthesizing a surprising combination of sculptural depuration and interior comfort.
Outside, a sober and sharp object can be appreciated from any angle – so light that it seems to levitate. Inside, the comfort of a uniform coating in pine – combined with the elegance and minimalism of the details, the chromatic choice and the quality of components and materials – results on a very seducing home.
