Architects: IDIN Architects Location: Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand Design Team: Jeravej Hongsakul, Akeanan Janeium, Pongpop Narapanich Area: 202 sqm Year: 2011 Photographs: Spaceshift Studio Site [http://www.archdaily.com/315335/w-house-idin-architects/] The design concept of W-House is derived from the requirement that the owner would like the house that expresses his character in terms of space and form. Therefore, the design subject was how to interpret the owner’s lifestyle and passion into architecture. The idea initiated by the owner’s favorite activity of traveling and kayaking. There was one picture of a boat sailing on the river that has inspired the designer. The river acts as a supporter for the boat. As a house, the function areas of living room, dining room, and service are supporters for the private areas of bedrooms. The bedrooms are like the boat which the river is supporting underneath for sailing. The idea was developed into the building orientation by maintaining the basic elements but completely reveal the story, functions and context.
