From the architect. The L71 house is a single family house located on the northeastern side of Bangkok, Thailand. The site for the house is a long and narrow shape site. All of the house programs such as 4 bedrooms, dining room, and family room are place along the site to face the North.

Since the owners have occasional parties, the public areas, such as living room and parking, are in the front of the house, and the private areas are in the back of the house along with a swimming pool.

Plan
Plan

The living room mass was extended to create private space for the swimming pool and the second floor mass was extended to create shading for the swimming pool and terrace.

If the house is designed as one big mass it will block ventilation and natural light, so in this house each room is split to maximize ventilation and natural light.

Plan
Plan

Since the masses are split, it creates some semi outdoor space to interlock indoor and outdoor space. Varieties of natural materials including water, grass and wood are inserted into each space.

The roof of the main house is double-roof to cover the house from weather. The lower roof is reinforced concrete slab, and the upper roof is metal sheet roof. 

Materials
Materials

A space between the two layers of roof acts as an air buffer, natural ventilation and allows for easy maintenance. Main material of this house is painted plastered brick wall and tint glass. Where the masses are splitted, the material of the splitted masses is wood.

Stucco as finished surface! Do you consider finished concrete, as it is a commonly use technique in Southeast Asia.

Is Stucco more durable and feasible than the commonly use concrete finishes?

Wood, what kind of wood siding? Can it withstand the hot and humid in Thailand? What about the wood color, does it keep the same look after 2 years?

However you worked out the airflow calculation for the roof it is still a very cool design.

This house is indeed really cool...light and airy. The thing that I do like is the way that interplay of the masses with the light wells created between...that is nice.

Natural Ventilation · June 24, 2011

How do you calculate the airflow between the double roof?

Martin Hedin · June 24, 2011

Why the double roof? Are not both waterproofed?

Poulin Giroux Alexandre · June 24, 2011

C'est très sobre et beau. Cependant, il y a cette mode de faire des blocs qui me dérange. À part cette petite manie, je trouve ca bien.
