The Ratchada 18 House in Thailand Channels Feng Shui Influences
Featuring natural light and elevated spaces.
Bangkok-based architecture firm AOMO was recently tasked with developing an extension to a one-story house in the Haui Khwang district of the city. For this project, the architects took inspiration from Feng Shui with the practice informing decisions about spacing and the property’s roof.
Another big influence on the space was the “anti-gravity and levitating concept.” These two main influences led to decisions such as the cantilevered roof, the bedroom levitating over a rock garden and house zoning that emphasizes natural light, ventilation and the view of the landscape. A further consideration was the project’s relatively low budget, which meant that inexpensive materials such as cement, PVC and polished concrete were integral to the design.
