The Family House
On a corner plot of land in the centre of Bangkok, 55 Sathorn is a contemporary, luxurious family home that feels far from its populous neighbourhood.
Beginning its life as half of a semi-detached art-deco-styled dwelling, Open Shut House has been extended to account for the ever-changing nature of a family with four young adult children.
How do you retain the original charm while making them suitable for modern living? It’s a common issue in many heritage homes, but Pierce Widera has transformed this petite Edwardian cottage into a comfortable family home.
Designed by LAYAN and The Flaming Beacon, an illuminated façade screen transforms the interior of Light House with ever-changing light and shadows dependent on the seasons and time of day.
