The Samui Koh gallery building, planted in the heart of a fertile tropical wonderland is inspired by the exotic life that once dominated the region and the islands south of Thailand. Aside from its aspiration to induce serenity, the building symbolizes the idealistic approach of the owner to introduce this cultural center as an incubator for the exchange of ideas and acts with the world at large. The building acts not only as a shelter for the discourse, rehearsal and production but also as a vessel for the delivery of the local arts and culture back to the world.
