9780794604936: Paradise by Design: Tropical Residences and Resorts by Bensley Design Studios

Featuring hundreds of stunning color photographs and insightful commentary, this Asian design book showcases the art, architecture and design of the East.

Eclectic, baroque and sophisticated—such are the characteristics of the lifestyle resorts and extravagant private residences crafted by the renowned Bensley Design Studios in Bangkok and Bali. The 27 resorts and homes featured in Paradise by Design are set amidst resplendent tropical gardens and spread from China to India to Bali.

Focused in Asia Pacific, these buildings are unconventional, sensual and hold a special reverence for the tropical climate. Focusing not only on the architecture of the buildings, but also the landscape design, interior design, horticulture and fine arts and crafts found within and without these buildings, Paradise by Design transcends the traditional and details an inclusive look at some of the most stylish and diverse homes and resorts in Asia.

About the Author:

Bill Bensley first went to Asia in 1984. He worked at Belt Collins, an American landscape architectural firm, before starting his own studio in Bangkok in 1989. A need to have creative fun has fuelled the creation of his prolific portfolio, which includes over 100 resorts in 26 countries.

Review:

"A look into some of the best resorts in Bangkok, Bali, China, and India, highlighting the design and landscaping that were designed specifically for Asia's tropical climate." —Travel Life magazine
