Baan Lek Villa ground floor was designed as public area which always welcome guests and friends that always visiting. According to characteristic of local Thai habit, the ground floor was designated as kitchen and dining which acted as living and activities area. Those areas were semi outdoor to let the landscape flow into the space inside with natural light and ventilation. The result is no boundary between nature and man-made. The wooden stair led to the upper floor was designed as private area for resting. The large open multi-purpose wooden patio was placed for leisure activities and connects to all bedrooms.
