The Baan Suan Mook resort is located in the middle of a pineapple field on the Hin Lek Fai hill in Hua Hin, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Thailand and it was designed in 2013 by the practice of SOOK Architects.
The small resort is surrounded by a rural setting and this makes it stand out from the other resorts on the beach. The project contains 14 hotel rooms, function rooms and there is also a restaurant and a banquet room.
The resort was built to preserve the large pineapple plot and to live here after retirement so the design tries to straighten the cultural landscape and the agricultural plantations of pineapple, coconut, mango, native basil or wild grass flowers.
The architecture is vernacular with a gable rood, elevated ground floor and a verandah with a selection of structural steel to create an adaptable and simple design with the main functions of the house visible from the street and easily accessible.
