Wind House is a private residence in Bangkok, designed by Openspace design. The design process started around the question of “How to live comfortably with nature?”. I think this is such an interesting question to start a project with. We either try to keep nature out in our modern homes, or we rather want the opposite: to be more rustic living in the midst of nature. But this question seems to seamlessly combine the two without conflict. It just goes to show how important the beginning and foundation can be for the projects whole outcome.
It was important for the owner to incorporate its surroundings in a resort-like feel as the house sits on the edge of the housing estate project’s boundary. And Openspace design truly delivered a magnificent modern building where nature is ever-present. Just look at the way they used wind to flow through the house as a natural way of cooling it down. And how they’ve managed to keep it a light space without the burning rays of the Thai sun heating it up to boiling point. It not only looks magnificent, it also feels comfortable.
