The homeowner firstly stated to us, “Our primary concern is personal privacy. Looking from outside, people shouldn’t see a thing inside. On the other hand, space inside should be open and connected. Also, we would like all rooms to perceive the lake view, if possible.” Located in gated community, the land plot has long-rectangle shape with a short side connected to the private lake and filled with trees. Once entering the land, everyone will feel almost like an oasis, completely isolated from outside. Because of large trees, warm breeze, and calm lakes. We then created the space to promote that “Oasis” feeling, aiming for an ideal retreat-home. ​The house is divided into two parts – (1), a guest reception part and service area is single-story located in front of the house, allowing easy access while keeping privacy to (2), the private area which is two story, designed to be a multifunction and recreation area on the lower floor while upper floor are bedrooms viewing towards to lake. The two parts are separated by the lawn yard, allowing sunlight and breeze to enter the buildings evenly. ​Viewing from the road, you will only see white walls stacked orderly which block the solar heat from the west. When you walk through those walls, the space will lead you to a panoramic façade viewing towards shady green lawn and backside lake view, enabling family members to see each other from room to room and to reconnect during the day. Because of these unique designs, residents will feel isolated from the outside world once they step into the house and will fully enjoy spending their quality time with other beloved family members in the peaceful greenery oasis.

We believe that a well-designed home allows a family to spend more time together and be happier. “Samran” in Thai means “cheerfully.” Samran House, named by the homeowner, was designed to prioritize family time, focusing on connections between personal activities and shared family spaces to ensure the family experiences "samran" time, as the homeowner wished.

With the house members having entirely different interests and hobbies like gardening, playing piano, cooking, board games, and reading, we incorporated a library, living space, music space, dining area, kitchen, and a semi-outdoor barbecue yard connected to the backyard garden. With packed neighborhood, we maximize privacy with solid building envelope with openning towards backyard. then programs are placed in open plan layout with the light court in the middle. With movable partitions and full-height sliding door, making all space connected to maximize connections between spaces and flexibility within the small footprint of the house. Making multiple activity can be connected, allowing sufficient light and ventilation to the space through out the day. The first floor features an open plan,

On the second floor, there are common areas, a meditation space, a mini-library, and bedrooms, all placed around the same light court as on the ground floor to extend the connection to the main space. The openings face the backyard at the south side are covered with a cantilevered façade screen, allowing the bedrooms to enjoy the view of the lawn, lotus pond, and shaded terrace,  and the beautiful sky without any privacy issues while also blocking direct sunlight in the afternoon.
