Theme for a dream
"Pousada Tauma" is a 12 room hotel in Goa owned by Neville and Angelica Proenca. It is located in Calangute but away from the beach. There are three main themes that run through the project - three rooms of a sea theme, three of a field theme, 4 of the hills, 1 castle and a garden theme.
The Sea rooms use shell, coral and other sea-life themes in its design.
| The Field rooms use bamboo, light wood and other grasses in its design. |
The Hill rooms use stone and heavy woods in its design.
The whole project is tied together by the use of extensive stonework, which attempts to capture the vernacular in a contemporary way. Every room has a private garden and all of them focus round the central pool, all set in lush green surroundings. The project has been designed from an overall site and landscaping level, to details of even furniture and lamps.
