A family home in the very heart of Bangkok

With incredible ingenuity, the architect has achieved 340 square meters (plot ratio 1:2), notwithstanding the restriction that the permitted height of the building should not exceed 15 meters. To accommodate this, he designed a 4.5-story structure (excluding carpark) that is built up to one meter from the site boundary on all sides. A glass elevator facilitates access to the upper floors.

The house is built on a sliver of ‘left over’ land measuring just 160 square meters.  A 10-meter-long plunge pool cantilevers over the carpark, projecting over the pool and main entrance. Architect Stefan Schlau has made up for what the house lacks in external vistas with a beautifully composed internal space. Unusually for the center of Bangkok, the land is freehold.
