PA House by IDIN Architects
It has been a while since we’ve last mentioned IDIN Architects‘ work on our site, but before we continue with one of their latest projects, let’s just take a look back at the NY House in Bangkok and the KA House in Pak Chong, Thailand by this studio.
Just like these two residence, the PA House which is located in Bangkok, Thailand, features the signature cubic contemporary shape of the studio.
This new family home creates almost 6,000 square feet of living spaces which is more than enough for the 3 bedrooms and the common living space.
PA House is a private house for a small and new settled family. There are 3 bedrooms including one master bedroom and two bedrooms reserving for guest and their child in the future. Not only the bedrooms but there are also 2 more main requirements from the owner which are a great common area for living and dining, where the owners always get together with their friends as the new generation’s lifestyle does, and the privacy, the owner’s most important issue, from the unpleasant surroundings. While the house needs privacy, it still has to be roomy and clear in the same time.
Therefore, the concept design begins with studying the surrounding buildings about their height to outside-in and inside-out view of the house, to fit each function to the site appropriately. In the other hand, the surrounding buildings are not only the conditions but also the assistance to help the architects plan the layout and zoning of this house. In order to achieve such requirements, the wall planes are created for screening out the outside-in view, opening the inside-out view and creating an internal space in the same time. The main area of the house is the common area where owners can have a dinner and take 180 degree view of the green area through the swimming pool. Each wall plane is intentionally designed to float and locate around the house to define the house’s view and shade out the sunlight getting into the area simultaneously.
