the new project has a ‘private balcony’ concept, which is very useful for urban residences surrounded by neighbors. pockets of enclosed open terraces create privacy, but still welcome natural light and passive ventilation. the void above these areas become a great feature, providing a ‘private sky’ for the clients, a term attributed by the bangkok-based practice, openbox architects. the concept of tilting the windows towards a more open corner of the surroundings also contributes to the form of the house.
‘a marriage of architecture and landscape’ is subtly displayed everywhere, starting by taking into account the owner’s desire to naturally form this piece of sculpture. the use of materials, forms, and space flow seamlessly inside-out and outside-in, making strong connections between architecture, landscape, and the interior. the overall square shaped form surrounds an open courtyard in the center, where bamboo moves and sways creating the presence of the wind, allowing natural light and ventilation to reach all corners of the ‘marble house’.
the materials and finishes applied help protect the residence from direct sunlight and the external heat of bangkok. the marble finishes are, in fact, large scale and light-weight wall tiles with a marble pattern print. as an external finished material over a layer of internal brick wall, it also acts as a weather cladding, helping to cool down the interior during the day.
