all(zone): S3H multi-layered house features exterior cut-outs

 

all(zone) has formed an overlapping system of walls and openings in the ‘S3H house’, slicing the dwelling into several layers. the 550 square meter family home is located in a typical suburb of bangkok, surrounded by standard real estate developments. borrowing traditional elements from these neighboring buildings, the design manages to assimilate into its context, while incorporating a new language.

the cream structure exposes a layering of different spaces, as one is led from the outside to the interior rooms. a pitched-roof above the garage and the double-height volume behind, further enhance this journey from public to private. varying geometric cut-outs offer a contrast to the triangular roof with large, recessed windows that appear to be removed from an exterior skin. this pulling and pushing is applied throughout the building’s overall form, helping to both define and separate the spaces.
