“lullamoon” is combination of “lullaby” and “moon” which reflect its meaning of the natural lullaby. Moreover “la-moon” also means tenderness and kindness in Thai which can perfectly reflect our sensitive user that are pregnant women and babies.
This project intends to be a supporter for mom and dad to recreate their body and mind during their stay. It will react as a large-scale kid’s club that has nature as a tool for kids to learn and experience easily and safely by themselves. The other supportive functions will also be conveniently allocated throughout the project not only for kids such as nursing room, changing room, kid’s supply shop, play room, infant daycare, kid’s dining room, first aid room, kid’s toilet but also for couples as well such as couple spa and massage, seafood bbq buffet and bar.
The primary concept of this project is creating “Baby Friendly Resort” to promote the idea of parents traveling with their baby. Supporting family time and Creating the soft and safe touch to sensitive user are the 2 main interpretations derived from the primary concept. In terms of supporting family time, sharing area shall be designed throughout to be able to serve each family members. Creating the flow space by reducing the internal partitions is also the strategy to provide a visual connection. Soft and Safe touch to sensitive user was reflected by the custom design elements of material, form, color and lighting. On the other hand, those design elements would also be well interacted with “la-moon”, tenderness and kindness of “lullamoon”, the resort brand. Furthermore, both of interpretations shall be harmoniously integrated with the existing natural landscape context as well.

This section contains family support areas such as nursing room for feeding and changing diapers, infant daycare, kids supply shop, kid’s room (family play room), first aid, and a front office separate from the office building for the convenience of lobby services. The redesign of these 6 villas will bring the common areas mentioned above as the “welcome area” of the project.

In addition, the bar was also divided into two counters to accommodate guests both ways, with a circular design as well to create a continuity of space, and the center of the building, between counters, was designed as a display and preparation area for beverages.
In the design, a walkway was added from the villa side to guide and direct the eye to the pavilion bar, the open-air pavilion overlooking the surrounding scenery, giving the design of the walkway a sunken character that is not hides the scenery and ensures child safety and allows children to be close to nature, able to touch the water, without any discomfort and concern for parents.
