Located near the coast of the Gulf of Thailand, the design of this house is formed by the tropical conditions of South East Asia as well as the values of its owners, a Swiss family living in the region.

The house follows a simple arrangement of spaces, with five bedrooms laid out lengthwise on the upper floor. The lower floor consists of the kitchen, dining and a large living area facing the outdoor pool and garden.

The house is constructed using post-tensioned concrete slabs, which are more commonly found in commercial buildings in Thailand. The use of post-tensioning for this house provides uninterrupted spaces on the lower level, where large glass windows can be opened to connect the interior spaces with the outdoor areas.

This house continues Architectkidd’s interest in using raw and minimally processed building materials. The thin horizontal slabs contrast with the cast concrete shear walls and steel columns. All the wooden elements were designed using reclaimed local hard wood timber including the vertical screens which provide shading and natural airflow around the periphery of the upper floor.
