The intertwining of layers of each element is how the boundary between outside and inside was blurred and became almost invisible.

Components such as lawn, plants, trees and tiles are randomly placedon smooth steps continuously from surroundings into the area under the roof. These components also define room for the outdoor space. Meanwhile components such as roof and wall are just floating over the garden with little connections through the intentionally un-aligned slim steel columns.Translucent panels, assembled on the waffle steel structure roof, allow the natural light to interpenetrate into the covering area. Clear glass walls define the clear vision between air-conditioned volume and outside.

The property and relationship of all these layers are generating a space where the artificial boundary between landscape, architecture and interior is eliminated and create a simple definition of having coffee in a garden.

Integrated Field Co.,Ltd.

IF is a Thailand based design office that believes in finding a specified question for each project, to understand its “core”, and develop the design based on that issue throughout the whole process. With belief in this method, IF was founded by group of friends consisting of architects, an interior architect, a landscape architect and an industrial designer, intended to work together and gather aspects in as many fields as possible to create work from the integrated inputs as our core saying, “IF works in the Field of Integration”.
