We work with a number of fine architects, all of whom have many years experience designing new homes and condos, as well as traditional house renovation, in Thailand.
In order to build a home that is in keeping with living in the warm climate that Thailand enjoys, and which suites the needs, tastes and aspirations of its owners, an architect must work closely with their clients, and be mindful of the local environment and landscape.
It is very important to design a house so that the room layout works both ergonomically and will keep the interior cool. Outside the patios must be positioned to maximize areas of light and shade throughout the day, as in the summer months the majority of time is spent outside.
The architect’s vast experience of building in Thailand allows them to introduce clients to materials and techniques both modern and traditional allowing your own individual style of design to be realised.
New properties use a concrete frame structure and lend themselves to being designed in a modern style, using clean simple lines, or being combined with elements of traditional style using arches and cement coloured rendering.
In contrast stone buildings, be they new or renovated, use traditional building methods and materials, and although they incorporate modern electrics and plumbing, result in a home with a more traditional rustic appearance and ambience.
So, having found the location for your home, the first stage of building is to meet an architect for initial discussion about your land and the style of house you want. We will be delighted to make this introduction, which will establish that there is empathy in how the house is visualized, from which a definitive design can evolve.
