SOOK Architects completed a project in Bangkok called O-ART-IM House. The three level white structure comes with a stacked asymmetric exterior full of glass inclusions and a minimal front yard.
A low fence, surrounding the house, provides no privacy for the residents that don’t seem to mind the ample display of the minimalist interiors.
Modern house in Bangkok
Asymmetric structure makes it stand out from others pitched roof houses
Traditionally pitched roof provides sun awning for the two balconies that the house boasts. The rest of it, though, is as modern as it can get.
Open plan keeps the rooms light. Two levels of the house feature smaller more traditional windows at the sides.
Decor is virtually non-existent, but there is everything one needs for comfortable modern living like a generously-spaced chef’s kitchen, bedrooms, and work/study area.
Although the house has modest views, it towers high enough to see far, and overlook more things.
