Mui Ne is located on southwest coast of Vietnam within a 4hr drive from Ho Chi Minh City.  The traditional fishing village has fast become a travel hot spot of Vietnam, popular for windsurfing, kite surfing and beach recreation.  Its proximity to Ho Chi Minh City makes it an appealing holiday destination to local visitors and increasingly international tourists from Europe and North Asia (Korea, Japan and China).

Novaland’s ambition with Novahills is to create a point of difference within the locality with a resort that is uniquely different, but embodies a level of familiarity between the local culture and other world class beach resorts.  Total area of the project is 40 hectares which includes 600 resort villas .

RED Design Group was commissioned to undertake the Public Facilities Architecture and Public Facilities Interior Design

The design of the resort is contemporary but embraces the traditional features of Spanish Revival, and Mediterranean Architecture. RED incorporated elements of arches, terracotta roof tiles, arcades, ornamental iron work, painted tiles sand stucco, natural material with earth tones to help settle the architecture into the hillside and cliff frontage.

Incorporating local materials that blend  with the design style was an important feature of the design.  The use of decorative tiles, terracotta and stone and iron work creating a level of familiarity with local visitors that fit the overall design aesthetics.

The intent with the Public Facilities concept is that all building link together as part of the same township and village, with the club house being the central focus within the development.
