WHAT THE FAÇADE OF PRIME NATURE VILLA RESIDENCE IN BANGKOK DESIGNED BY AYUTT AND ASSOCIATES DESIGN BRINGS TO THE BUILDING’S EXTERIOR SURFACE IS REFLECTED SHADOWS AND A CONTROLLED AMOUNT OF LIGHT WITHIN THE INTERIOR SPACE.
This three-story residential project stands out for its lakeside location. One of the demands from the project’s owner was that while the building should be visually distinctive, it had to also offer dwellers a sense of privacy. The architect divided the architectural mass into three different parts with different levels of accessibility. The public area includes the reception foyer, parking area and maid’s room while the semi-public space of the house is comprised of the living area, swimming pool and reception room. The private area encompasses the master bedroom, rooftop meditation ground and garden where organic vegetables are grown. Not only does the green space at the top of the building help to decrease the temperature with its heart absorption abilities, but it also lessens the stiffness of the architectural form of superimposed rectangular masses. The architecture is cladded with a series of sliding laths made of perforated aluminum panels, which bear the details of randomized hole sizes while the panels themselves can be closed and opened. What this façade brings to the building’s exterior surface is the reflected shadows and a controlled amount of light within the interior space. It also helps to define the perspective that best suits the demands of each functional space.
