Contemporary homes and villas seem to be as much about spectacular and stunning views of the landscape they overlook as they are about stylish and sleek interiors. Designers and home owners are placing greater importance on integrating the surroundings into the design of the structure itself and when the backdrop is laced with tropical forests unending green canopy and refreshing views of the Andaman Sea it is pretty hard to find fault with the logic!
