Residential | A-House
Single Detached House
A-House was designed for a young couple, located on a plot of land with the parents' existing house. The design balances the openness of the house while maintaining the couple's privacy. Due to the tension between the need to be both closed and opened, along with the site's context, the building mass was designed as a U-shape with an enclosed courtyard that serve as both a private space and a connection to the parents' existing house. The building skin was an interface between the inside and the outside and was envisioned to become a mediator between the two opposing forces. Building environmental simulation tools have been used to identify areas which need such flexibility in order to fine-tune the design of the skin.
GD received 2013 Asia Pacific Property Awards in architectural design category for Best Architecture Single Residence Thailand.
