This Thai home by Teerachai Leesuraplanon architects is more than just a structurally sound building design. The 'Baan Ing Gaya,' translated to 'Lean House,' is arranged in accordance with the metaphysical practice of Feng Shui for a senior Chinese-Thai man who is experiencing a fundamental change in lifestyle. Natural elements are very important to the meditative art of the quasi-philosophical system, hence the Thai home is constructed with locally sourced Angthong bricks and wood.
Moving from a four storey commercial building to a single storey Thai home, the owner is adjusting to a new context in the spacious and mental sense. Seeking out to balance modern thinking with traditional values, the Teerachai Leesuraplanon firm used cues from both Thai and Chinese architecture and a healthy blend of convention and science.
