Bear House is a minimal home located in Cha-Am Beach, Thailand, designed by Onion. The architecture firm knowingly named their practice after a vegetable as a way to prove their style of being memorable and unique. They are specialized in working on both residential and commercial projects promoting a modern yet individualistic styling.
The clients requested to renovate their three-story home around their prized-possession: [email protected] figurines. The renovation includes an exhibition space specifically designed to showcase the [email protected], with enough space to house 17 figurines. The home mixes sterile and clean aesthetics with warm and natural tones. Timber and oak can be seen paneling the floors, walls, and even the ceiling.
Better yet is the graffiti scattered across the walls, designed by Thai artists MMFK and P7, which gives the otherwise cold interior a playful personality. The architects described the home as a replica of the cabinets that enclose the bears, thus the ladders that can be seen sprawling from the ground floor to the roof, as well as the timber-made daybeds.
