Text description provided by the architects. Since the owner's family just started their new business which is "bakery catering". So, they decided to build a new house in proximate distance which will become their sweet home and a business place. The name of this project comes from "Kanom" which means "dessert" in Thai language and the street named "Chan" where the project is located.

About 100 square was, the site location is in a high-density area of Sathorn which surrounded by houses, row houses and old buildings. Taxicabs always come in and out, because the taxicab parking space is next to the site, and this particular parking space will create privacy to this project. This particular context has become a very important role in design aspect, as it defines building massing and orientation. Anonym was requested to design based on factors, to create privacy for owner's family. The key idea is to layer functions as well as arrange zoning vertically for public & private space separation. The whole spaces of first and second floor are dedicated as public area. There are offices and pantry where all office staffs can access. And third floor is divided into 2 living spaces for 2 families.


Then, the building massing was created. Three stories solid walls on the East and West side provides privacy to the inner room The space in-between is the inner court that allows natural light to penetrate the space inside. This is where the main staircase connects to each floor. Natural light plays a leading role in this area when it cast a shadow through the glass louvers. Anonym put full height windows on the Southern side to expand the view of a big splendid tree in the neighborhood, as well as to employ natural ventilation. At the front of the house, the architect designed a double volume balcony that creates an inviting main entrance. it is a multifunction area  where the owners and office staffs can use for any special events.

Another element that is very important to the house design is various materials application, such as glasses, black steel frames and white plaster walls. The contrast of contexts makes the house stand out from the neighborhood and has become a widely noticed building in this area.
