GreenDwell was established in 2009, providing design and consultancy services for buildings with sustainable design intents. 

 

We believe that spatial design has tremendous impact on how dwellers would experience their day and thus impacting their daily wellness.  We believe that architectural quality can be truly evaluated not at the moment it is looked at, but rather, throughout the time spent in such space. Therefore, a designer’s responsibility is to make sure the space designed is ‘dwell-able’.    We are passionate in finding the relationship between dwellers’ spatial usage pattern and their surrounding contexts and crafting intermediary space to weave them together, creating an experience which is a delight to all the senses, while minimizing impacts on the environment.

 

We love to work on projects in which dwellers would spend lots of time in such as houses, schools, or workspace. We also enjoy collaborating with not-for-profit organizations to develop socially responsible projects serving communities in needs.

 

GreenDwell /Yoo-Yen-Pen-Sook


Yoo-Yen-Pen-Sook  is a Thai old saying, which links a thermally comfortable living with a sense of comfort in terms of peace of mind. We think this term is similar to the term ‘dwell’, which does not only mean ‘to live’ but it also shows psychological sense of comfort or ‘wellbeing’.

Our green research-integrated design (g.r.i.d) process helps us to hypothesize the various senses that users may experience after the building is constructed. Through the use of computer simulation tools – our ‘sensual experience tester’ – we could check the performance since early phase, such as daylight, shading, or ventilation, to refine and finalize our design.

Raksak has several years of professional experience as a design architect working for international firms abroad. He believes that the beauty of architecture does not only lie in the way it expresses itself but also in how people dwell in it.

Siritip was inspired by the concepts of climate-responsive design, especially for a hot and humid climate, leading to her graduate degree in sustainable building tech. Her works focus on integrating green design right from conceptual and involve the use of simulation tools to verify green concepts.
