The new modern design house designed specifically for small family. YAK also as the home located on Yen Akat Road, Bangkok, Thailand this modern take with Ayutt and Associates. It consists of 560 square meters of private land and 500 square meters of internal space can be used. Although the space usable land is limited, but the client still wants a large green area to enjoy, as well as a modern house with the feel of the sun and rain. After many hours of planning and design meetings architect finally decided almost over half of the homes on ground floor area, this will free up more space in the garden. This house was designed in an L shape to increase the usable space and green areas.
One side of the wall of the house is designed close to an adjacent plot of land to maximize the green space. The bathrooms, service areas, storages and staircases are located on the south as buffer zones to absorb the heat and provide more privacy for the main private space. Most of glass walls are in the north of the house in order to receive natural sunlight since the northern sunlight is the least intense in Thailand. In addition, 50 percent of the land is an open space for gardening that can be visible from every angle of the house. The swimming pool is positioned in parallel with the building to draw cool air into the house. The architect’s main concerns are to keep the building cool during daytime and provide cross-ventilation from opposing windows for every room. The layout not only satisfies the client’s need, but also provides a natural ventilation and generous outdoor area compared with that of a small plot with similar surrounding properties.
