Traditional steep Thai roof styles have been integrated successfully from Phuket Villas to recent Phuket Apartment for Sale. Whatever is the site, proof of ownership has to be submitted either building permits or document showing previous sale-purchase.

In the early 90’s, the steep Thai ‘temple style’ roof became popular in Phuket Houses for sale.  It certainly made a lot of sense allowing Phuket to be marketed as unmistakably Thai in contrast to Bali homes.  

The villa market has now matured and developed to a point where buyers even allow architects to experiment with other less recognisable Asian roof designs as well as modernist concepts or blends of the two. Infact, the transition of Image

with its maritime climate of unstable and wet weather has eventually separated villa style.  

Be it a family who desire to have a practical integrated family living space, a western roof design or shallower Asian style is often the preferred choice.  Foreigners who adapt to such longer term residential usage in Phuket want reasonable storage space for closets and cupboards etc in rooms. 

However, one additional hindrance is that in west coast, paradoxical sea and beach view is difficult because the land is quite steep. Therefore, in multi home developments, the Thai roofs create problems for view lines from villas at the rear. This eventually put pressure to the Phuket land on this style and caused a rethink to shallower roofs and even flat roofs.

There are many Western developers who have already moved on to a blended Asian roof style.  They can either choose different roof tiles or shingles or have certain gable end or apex features to differentiate their designs.

To summarize, Phuket market has grown sufficiently in scale and matured now to be many different styles even if this isn’t exactly any one particular Thai design.

Known to be the home of several romantic and stunning beaches, there are varied choices of hotels, Phuket homes and apartments ranging from luxury types to affordable ones. Above all, this eccentric island has a tropical monsoonal climate.

Its climatic condition is just like the Philippines. Phuket land  has dry season running from November to April and rainy season is from May to October.
