This under construction residence is located near Khao Yai National Park. It has been designed for air-condition free living all year round. As some of you may know, Thailand has three season which is hot, very hot and wet. Even around Khao Yai where the air is usually cooler because of the elevation, it still gets very hot and humid in the summer. Living air-condition free in Thailand is rather difficult for modern lifestyle.
The house has been design to have natural chimney effect with hot air rising to vent out at the top floor and cool air entering at the lower levels.
We also design a double layer brick wall for the second floor with a layer of exterior skin, so the bedrooms are protected from heat transmission.
