Bangkok-based studio Office AT (Office of Architectural Transition) has designed the L71 House, a contemporary residence located in Bangkok, Thailand.
This four bedroom, four bathroom house was completed in 2010 for a cost of 13 million Baht, which converts to $420,000 USD.
L71 House by Office AT:
“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.
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.
