GABLE HOUSE

Rama 9, Bangkok
Thailand

Situated in a high-end housing project, the Gable house has been designed such they it appears camouflaged within its environment. Although located close to urban public infrastructure and a local community of low-density dwellings, it fits well into the high quality, natural urban environment. Local regulations have influenced many aspects of the design including height restrictions, material choices, colour scheme, open space ratio and the roof form. Warm grey tiles covering a gable roof structure provide the key external visual effect and sense of harmonization with the surroundings. Its name, “Gable House,” is derived from this most visually recognizable roof form.

        The specific challenge of this house design was creating and developing the design in the direction of modern Thai architecture, while heeding the codes of the local community. Thus, the designer focused on implementing both tropical and sophisticated modern Thai design concepts. The central courtyard design epitomises the traditional Thai house and gives rise to the creative combination of both positive spaces of the geometric building and the negative space of the central swimming pool. The layout of this “C” shaped mass effectively allows both natural light and natural ventilation into the house interior.
