Welcome to the exotic Thailand! Breathtaking views, amazing people, interesting food and an entire range of activities that might seem exotic to the Western tourist, are worth taking the “risk” of exploring the boundaries of an awesome Thai lifestyle! Finding yourself on a land that exhales cultural diversity, the Baan Citta house, located in the North part of the busy city of Bankok is the work of XXS, a design studio that mainly focuses on balancing aesthetics with functionality and creating seamless flows between spaces, in order to understand the client’s vision of an “ideal home” and bring him closer to his comfort zone.
Really fascinating, the house has a beautiful view over the lake. You can enjoy the beautiful lake sunsets from the intimacy of the upper bedrooms. What’s really amazing is the fact that you can also enjoy the lake view from the swimming pool, giving you that particular feeling that you are about to immerse into infinity. The house is really spacious and inspiring, due to the client’s request, who wanted a zen home, a perfect escape with plenty of open spaces. Baan Citta also inspires a strong connection with the environment.
These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.
The best architects can create designs which will give clients and the public things they didn’t even realise they wanted, and this is especially important when architects are given the difficult brief of creating structures in much-loved, iconic areas.
