baan-lan-suan

The owner of a long-standing resort hotel on the beach of Cha-am, Petchburi province, Thailand, wishes to replace his own three-storey detached house within the resort compound with a new facility that houses the resort’s new lobby, restaurant, bar, service functions, and parking.

Three main design considerations take the cue from the name of the establishment : baan (house), lan (open court), and suan (garden/landscape). As an homage to the existing house and the memories it holds, the new structure references the domestic scale and homey archetypal form of traditional gable-roofed house, embodying three new houses –two brick & mortar and one skeletal/symbolic. A decades-old tree on the property remains intact; its presence highlighted by a new forecourt. The collective’s scale, formal gesture, and fluid openness to the street & the beach welcome guests and passers-by, blending in with its lively, animated local surroundings.
