Romantic Peranakan Homes
What is Wings?
Wings is a creative boutique collection of one-bedroom pool villas, designed with Romantic Peranakan architectural concepts, and boast plot sizes ranging from 144 sqm up to 200 sqm, with their own private 6.5m pool and courtyard.
Inspired by the historical Sino architecture of Old Phuket, Wings is a contemporary interpretation of traditional laid back lifestyles, where privacy is paramount and enjoyment can be experienced in secluded indoor and outdoor living spaces. Wings is developed by “the Attitude Club” (former Twovillas Group) a team of creative, forward thinking property developers with a track record of 20-years experience and who have so far created 19 residential environments in Phuket’s Naiharn, Bangtao and Panwa Bay Coastal areas.
Phuketindex.com recently spoke to Ms. Kanokpan Pranveerapaiboon (Khun Kwan) General Manager of Wings about the imagination and inspiration which went into creating such a stylish project.
Live and breathe a life of inspiration. An artistic fusion of modern-sino architectural concepts for inspiring indoor and outdoor living
“The charm of Old Phuket Town’s 18th century architecture has been an inspiration to the artistically inclined for generations. Although we have not tried to copy this unique architecture, we have used this as a theme for our designs. It also proved a popular theme of improvisation for the designers of Wings. Wing’s overwhelming success was down to its ideal location, affordability as a starter or holiday home, and most of all, a fresh architectural approach to a traditional theme.
We gave the architects and designers a free reign to create an exclusive community of contemporary single-story abodes inspired by the colonial architecture found around Old Phuket Town and the streets of sister towns in Penang and Malacca, Malaysia.
In fact, the principle exterior colour chosen for Wings homes was a stunning ocean blue, emulating the façade of one of the elegant colonial-era mansions in Penang, which has given Wings homes a uniquely fresh and vibrant character. As with colonial architecture, the designers gave the modern Wings homes a classic touch of class while keeping things practical and making the most of the tropical climate, to offer stylish private pool villas at an affordable price ” she said.
Ambitious architecture of practical privacy crafted to inspire
“Wings is especially suited to trendy singles and couples wanting a private, modern abode. Architectural expression has been used to create homes with special living spaces designed to meet individual needs on practical and emotional levels and set free the artist within.
Located in quiet, natural surroundings in a historical area of Phuket Wing’s peaceful location is in the cradle of ancient civilization 5 mins to Laguna Phuket, 10 mins to Bangtao Beach, 15 mins to Airport, 20 mins to Phuket Town. The 28 secluded single-storey private homes are akin to a collection of artworks – lovingly designed to offer a sanctuary of peace and inspiration.” said Ms. Kanokpan
Living Within Art
Set your imagination free and let inspiration soar
“These are new homes with an old story. Just like traditional Peranakan houses, natural light is allowed to fill the rooms. The front entrance opens to a highceiling hall with an oriental backdrop, which leads to the spacious bedroom and en-suite bathroom.
The homes each cover 137 square metres (sqm) with at least half of the area dedicated to outdoor living, including a 23.48 sqm roof terrace – large enough to easily accommodate a big table with sun umbrella and deck chairs.
The covered parking area for Wings residents provides enough shaded space for one car per unit and is set away from the homes to minimize disturbances. Residents then walk down a pathway to their private villa entrances.
Privacy is complete once inside each compact Wings compound, where the elongated 17.6m x 8m arrangement offers a very spacious and functional living environment; separating the living area, bedroom and bathroom, but keeping them well lit with natural light.
The bathroom’s skylight is a novel yet practical feature, which keeps the space well lit with sunlight. Set in the garden surrounded by a high wall, the 15 sqm swimming pool can be accessed directly from the living area, through full-length sliding glass doors” said Wing General Manager Kanokpan Pranveerapaibool.
The III Phase Romantic Peranakan Homes
“We successfully sold out phases I & II and the market is now ready Phase III, romantic 2 bedroom villas which will start from only 6.2 Million Baht. Each will have many high-end features, including a private pool along one entire side of the home and a roof-top patio. Wings homes are very competitively priced when you compare what you would pay for a
much smaller condominium unit, for example”
