Villa Nunsurakit I



Floor space

1500 m2


The build­ing is divided into three com­part­ments in the width of which the outer com­part­ments include three floors and the inner com­part­ment includes two floors. This dif­fer­ence in floor heights will cre­ate a split level where the floors meet.

At the same time there’s a divi­sion in three over the length. In these the light wells and ser­vices are organised.


The stairs are placed in the zon­ing in between the split lev­els. The stairs and their land­ings are part of the liv­ing space. Spe­cial fea­tures can be made in the large stairs con­nect­ing the liv­ing room with the pri­vate rooms like a plat­form for art, object or seating.


The build­ing has two cores in the cen­tre of the pri­vate areas, these func­tion as ser­vice areas. The most pri­vate areas will be placed in both ends of the build­ing, while the rep­re­sen­ta­tive func­tions like the liv­ing and din­ing room are placed in the mid­dle of the building.

Guests have a sep­a­rate bath­room and kitchen, to min­i­mise any incon­ve­nience. To sep­a­rate the The cir­cu­la­tion of the guests is sep­a­rated from that of the fam­ily. They meet in the liv­ing and din­ing room in the mid­dle of the house.


A sys­tem of shut­ters will be part of the exte­rior of this house. These shut­ters pro­vide pri­vacy where needed and they are able to con­trol the tem­per­a­ture inside. They can be moved man­u­ally to adapt to the time of the day and the posi­tion of the sun.


The divi­sion in three both ways is related to the wish of the client to pre­fab the steel con­struc­tion in the Nether­lands and ship it to Thai­land. It will be built as a IFD sys­tem (Indus­trial, Flex­i­ble Demountable).
