A bespoke modernist house perched on the side of a hill overlooking farm land with views of the gulf of Thailand. The design blends simplicity of form with local craft, to result in a one of a kind eco-home.
At one of the first design meetings with the client he mentioned his love of turn of the century design and modernism. We decided early on to explore this idea of simple raw materials, expressed in clean lines that cut through the landscape and to locate walls in such a way that allows the inside to blend with the outside. The house should feel like an extension of the land and vis-a-versa.
We were looking for something special and different from the main stream, We didn't want the same cookie cutter approach we had found elsewhere. The team at COLE took us through the design process and delivered far beyond our initial expectations and we could not be more happy with the results.

People comment about the building when they visit, They love the way it fuses the old with the new. I love the way the light comes through the spaces in the morning it does not fail to make me smile
