Combining the greatest of European and Asian architectural traditions while at the identical time turning them each on their heads, this Thai house by Architectkidd Co. Ltd. seeks to resolve problems arising from the landscape surrounding it in high style. The building’;s most striking function is apparent: the major property is set asymmetrically on top of a conglomerate of a lot much more rounded guest quarters, a geometric contrast to the structure beneath. This arrangement creates a large and functional house with a suitably geometric type without having compromising the integrity of the landscape it’;s placed on. The elevated main living spaces also provide higher views of their surroundings than a ground-level glass-wall abode would. With guest bedrooms and utility spaces situated in the squished reduced level, the upper home is opened up for the everyday life of its owners. As a entire, it makes an for attractively juxtaposed sight in the Thai countryside.
The structure’;s sole entrance sits significantly beneath its biggest overhang, major into the ground-floor bubble that differentiates its design from other modern constructions. Inside, the decrease floor homes only utilities and guest rooms, with a staircase leading to the principal living spaces upstairs.
The dwelling’;s lot is on a subtle hill, a single of the factors that such a distinctive design and style was selected. Its organically-shaped reduced region fits the crest of the hill with all-natural grace, permitting a a lot more geometric wing to float above it with no interrupting the landscape.
The master bathroom is protected from prying eyes on the a lot more public side of the house by a wall section covered in shingles, even though the bedroom subsequent to it has glass walls along with the rest of the box.
Though each sections of the constructing share similar textures and colors, the components of each and every finish are diverse. The lower, organically-shaped section makes use of clay tiles sourced locally, whereas the upper section is decorated with conventional wood shingles.
A massive deck on one side of the property, where the porch would be if the rectangular volume sat straight on the ground, supplies a space for entertaining or relaxing outdoors.
Most of the home’;s interior decor is done up in a combination of Sixties and contemporary furniture, completed in calming shades. All brighter colors are darkened or otherwise diluted, with whites turned to cream hues.
The finish of the residence with a smaller overhang has a deck section at its farthest point, set above the globular bottom story. A step out of the living area brings residents to fresh outside breezes.
On the end of the rectangular section that consists of the home’;s master bedroom and bathroom, angled girders obscure the view inward from afar, masking private spaces with out cutting them off completely.
