A pool villa has set new standards in Pattaya
In 2021, the characteristic villa designed by Mario Kleff at Majestic Residence on the Phra Tamnak Hill comprised the longest cellular beam of 48 meter between two columns.
The foreign resident Phil Williams from England agreed to tear down two villas that he had recently bought for over 1 million USD, and commissioned the architect Mario Kleff to develop a new design that was to cover the entire property. It was also agreed that Mario Kleff's construction company Wandeegroup Asia Co Ltd should carry out the construction of the building.

The signature villa is located at Majestic Residence 366/96 Kasetsin, Pattaya City, Bang Lamung District, Chon Buri 20150. The property borders on Soi 5 and Soi 6. Although the building structure is modern and of sophisticated engineering, the outer design of the villa should be adapted to the surrounding homes.
The signature villa designed by Mario Kleff includes smart systems, state-of-the-art air conditioning and world-class engineering. Three types of ultra high strength concrete, including marine concrete, was used to complete the structure. Mario Kleff integrated the cellular beam with post-tensioned concrete deck to span the floors between two columns over a distance of 48 meter. On the upper penthouse floor, Mario Kleff used a custom fabricated steel box girder with RC slab to cantilever a distance of 19 meter. In order to successfully carry out the engineering and to receive a planning permit, Dr Songkiat Matupayont from Bangkok has agreed to support the design of Mario Kleff.
The outside of the building is pristine. Mario Kleff presented the idea of covering the entire villa with limestone cladding in order to protect the property from the winds and the water of the nearby ocean. Stone cladding with a mixture of gray up to beige tones cover the ground floor and the large pool with a water feature including whirlpool, waterfalls, an outdoor LED screen with sound system and two California palm trees.
Another special feature is the custom elevator with a glass facade, which transports the homeowner from the ground floor to the upper penthouse floor. Mario Kleff's originally proposed design started the elevator from the basement.
The basement of ca. 550 sqm can accommodate up to four cars and has a large system room to provide space for pumps and water storage. A large game room and a bar is also on this floor. As a design element, Mario Kleff and his assistant architect Waraporn Na-Lampang ordered a company to install a pool acrylic window to offer a pool view from the garage. The floor is covered with dark to brown stone tiles. An automatic roller door made of aluminum seals the space.
Large window panes made of anti-reflective clear glass framed with aluminum profile were designed by Mario Kleff to provide optimal lighting conditions and visibility. The windows of this villa were designed so that window frames are hidden in walls and structure in order to make only the glass panes visible.
Mario Kleff did not design the interiors or furniture of the signature villa at Majestic Residence, but provided concept and the layout for every room. Wandeegroup Asia Co Ltd completed the structure of Majestic Residence 366/99 signature villa in May 2022.
