As enthusiasts of innovative home design, we’re always intrigued to see how architects account for climate when they design modern homes for maximum comfort and style combined. That’s why we were so enthralled by the photos when we found out about Tiwanon House, a residential project designed by Archimontage Design Fields Sophisticated in 2015.
Located in Nonthaburi, Thailand, Tiwanon house is the perfect getaway on a very hot day, but also a comfortable place to be when the weather cools and the rain comes. Large picture windows ensure that plenty of light is always available, even if the sun is hidden. At the same time, gorgeous wooden slatted shutters act as a screen to shut out intense sun rays without cramping the home’s style. Instead, they contribute to the aesthetic and give the house a unique and positively eye catching exterior.
Besides the screens, the exterior of the house bears another very unique feature: a number of miniature pools that weave in and around the pillars supporting the upper floor. They might be too narrow to go swimming in but they certainly make for a gorgeous, relaxing walk from the house to the back patio.
Inside the house, the decor scheme is ruled by clean white surfaces and gorgeously gleaming wood. Combined with the large windows, the effect is to make the house bright and cheerful even on days when the sun has prompted you to close the shutters and preserve the blissful coolness of some shade.
