Moreover, the Roof House performs as a common area that gathers a variety of family members’ activities; for example, being relaxing area, guest area, piano lesson area for Saturday and Sunday activities and playground for the dog.Save this picture!© Varp StudioDue to the limited budget and limited space, Looklen Architects designed the layout to be an open plan to connect all functions as one area. Also, this design creates multipurpose functions for future usage. The bordering of an existing tree, which is located in the middle of the land, forms a courtyard in the middle of the house.Save this picture!© Varp StudioThe central courtyard is also a focus point of each house functions. Additionally, it causes an airy space that connect to the outside. Still, it provides privacy to the house by using elements of large walls, at the front of the house, that bend towards each other.

The main structure is made from steel; making the house light weighted. The front is the most open space of the house which is built by wide span structure of a 14-meter long. Beside tilted wall is intended to compatible with the middle courtyard.

The architect also uses wood as a primary material because it generates a warm atmosphere and decreases echo.Furthermore, the connected wood ceiling bonds inside-area with outside-area.Save this picture!© Varp StudioSave this picture!SectionThe architect enhances a homely environment by installing up light along the roof’s side. From the outside perspective, there is a lath fence that acts as the house’s double façade; to build privacy for the Roof House. Though, the neighborhoods are able to appreciate an open space and green area.Save this picture!© Varp StudioWhen designing the Roof House, the architect also considers energy saving by adopting passive design method to be harmonious with an atmosphere. The architect detaches one side of the hip roof (North side) to allow more wind and sunlight passing through the courtyard. There are 5-meter windows the face towards the North and the East allow the house to be lighted all day long. Moreover, long-sliding partitions allow wind to flow through the house. When all partitions are opened, they adjust the house’s function to be semi-indoor area.Save this picture!© Varp StudioProject gallerySee allShow lessVANKE Life Experience Center / AADSelected ProjectsHouse in Sakai / SAI Architectural Design OfficeSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:48 Soi Sathu Pradit 57, Khwaeng Bang Phong Phang, Khet Yan Nawa, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10120, ThailandLocation to be used only as a reference.
