junsekino combines wooden cantilevers with exposed steel for contemporary home in bangkok

famed thai architecture firm junsekino recently completed the nakhon chai si house located in the outer part of bangkok. a residence that houses three generations of thai/chinese family members, the project shares the site with the family’s factory but is separated for privacy. the open and modern residence looks over the vast landscape views.

junsekino placed the house to the side of the plot, benefitting from the stunning views of the neighboring lake and golf course. the architects also worked with the feng shui constraint of making the three story house appear only two stories. they achieved this illusion by separating the programs clearly and sinking parts of the house into the ground. all the service areas including the garage and maintenance lie on the basement floor which is hidden by the landscape.

the ground floor consists of the common area, dining area, living area, pool and the terrace with a panoramic view of the lake, appearing as if it was their own. the upper floor hosts the private rooms of two families that are separated by the main axis corridor. the main axis divides the house’s program into two wings, creating a wide and clear corridor. the column in the corridor hides all the electrical and mechanical equipment leaving a clean and open space.

the architect designed a double height space for corridor with a translucent roof that brings ample natural light into the space. the owner wanted to use natural materials in their raw state such as stone and wood, combining it with an exposed steel structure.

the natural material palette creates a cozy yet contemporary atmosphere in the residence. junsekino’s attention to detail also adds a layer of sophistication to the design. with the house’s reinforced concrete structure on the basement and steel structure on the ground floor and the upper floor, the architect aims to accent the lightness and thinness of the long eaves that protect rain and sunlight for common areas on the ground floor.

  • That is a Wow. I could do without communal living but appreciate their living near their work and fine taste. Well done.
