Stu/D/O architects tops houses of the gliding villa in thailand with triangular roofs

Stu/D/O architects’ gliding villa comprises two two-story residences built on a single land next to the khao-yai mountains, thailand, and topped with triangular roofs that visually connect the separate structures on site. the two villas are each located along the left and right boundary of the site in order to maximize the landscape between them, and ensure enough privacy for each resident while preventing the houses to be seen directly from the end of the public road.Stu/D/O architects tops houses of the gliding villa in thailand with triangular roofsall images by Stu/D/O, pirak anurakyawachon

 

 

Stu/D/O architects has divided the single piece of land into two equal plots for the two villas, leaving enough space in between for a large, central garden. common living areas are open to both the surrounding landscape and the garden, which acts as a large open space. however, views of the private rooms of both houses are separated from each other and focused strictly to the natural environment.

all volumes of the gliding villa are topped with triangular, tilted roofs, which create a visual connection from the entrance, to the single-floor parking/service building, to the living quarter, and from ground level up to the private bedrooms upstairs. the long span steel-structured roofs conceptually connect the two houses, creating the perception of a single residence, while the shape of the roofs also resembles that of the surrounding mountains.
