Date: March 2015
We were tasked with a modern detached house design from a half-constructed home for a client. The first thing we had to do, which we deem the most important of all tasks, was to listen to what our client, John, had to say. He was not overly satisfied with the last design of his home, so he decided to come to CAS for a new design.
John wanted the modern detached house design to be simple and contemporary, yet match the Thai culture and surrounding architecture. And also due to the annual floods, the home was to be placed on tall platforms. We designed large windows in the modern detached house design so the inhabitants could further enjoy the natural surrounding beauty of the area and a view of the large swimming pool in the backyard.
We also designed a modern detached area to the home which combines modernity with the Thai cultural architecture. The covered parking area was designed with wooden slabs while the rooftop of the detached home was designed to be completely accessible for family night gatherings. The rooftop area is bounded on all four sides with contemporary glass railings.
