Set amid a lush forested area of northern thailand, TOUCH architect has built a private home to be completely self-sustainable. positioned approximately 1,200 meters above sea level, the rural location of ‘tree sukkasem villa’ has no electricity supply or running water. the project was therefore designed around the concept of creating a ‘green’ and self-reliant building.
the one-story villa is organized by the architect around a clear design and simple functions. elevated above ground, residents enter via a set of wide concrete steps, passing through the surrounding greenery on their way. through the entrance foyer, they arrive into an open plan kitchen, dining and living area.
