after 10 years of designing private residences for their clients, the founders of BHX architects, korn and nartrudee thongtour, have realized their own tailor-made home in bangkok, thailand. as the name ‘basic house’ suggests, the project explores the fundamentals of beauty and function. the result is a building that combines basic materials with a sequence of small yet beautiful spaces.
BHX architects created a simple house tailored to fit its occupants, making it special and unique in its own particular way. they approached the design by analysing the meaning of the word family and the concept of family being expanded from two people. they also thought about the poetry of the word ‘expansion’ and how it can be applied to a limited space.
the courtyard in the middle of the house became the highlight of the home. it outlines the concept of family and invites nature into the indoor spaces. the open courtyard also allows visibility from one end of the elongated space to the other, affording constant interaction between family members.
