The initial brief from the client was to design a weekend home for a family of 2 generations near Khaoyai national park. The land was part of “The Creek” which was a full-scaled real-estate property, complete with the internal road, man-made rock formation, and artificial creeks running into a lake in the development center and necessary utilities. Abandoned for decades, landscape plantations have become fully grown, giving an impression of a real forest.
This particular plot of land is quite flat, completely surrounded by mountains, giving a strong impression of horizontal spatial connections between unique existing landscape elements. The house was preliminarily named “Bridge House” as an earlier concept was to separate all compounds into their own private environment, connected by walking paths or bridges, as an extension of space into different corners of the land.
