Son Tra Danang
Mercure Son Tran is located 10 kilometers from the city center and spans across 5 acres of natural preservation land. The sustainable resort seeks to minimize its footprint on this prime coastal land by gracefully placing a 5‐star hotel with full spa, restaurants, and 20 private villas in a manner that is integrated within the topography. The key elements of the site; sand, water, and rock were used to create a dynamic language that is seen in the architectural forms and movement of the buildings as well as the processional experience one undergoes when coming to such a destination. The dynamics of the interior spaces evolves from this language by referencing the importance of its fishing port, which is the lively hood and culture of the people.
