A Modern Townhouse with a Private Garden in Bangkok

Part of an 18-unit housing development designed by baan puripuri, this modern townhouse is situated in a lively area of Bangkok, Thailand. The three-story project blends its Thai roots with modernity to become spacious, light-filled residences with private gardens.

The facade is made of vertical concrete dividers that break up the rectangular structure with a standout pattern. Two cantilevered planter boxes, one for each unit, bring greenery to the elevation and add another design element to the front.

The entrances feature open staircases while also leading to the main living area.

The living room features double-height windows and sliding glass doors that dissolve the indoor/outdoor separation while bringing natural light into the space. The room exits to a patio with a vertical garden to enjoy.

The mezzanine level includes a dining room and bar area with pivoting windows that let the cross breeze pass through.

The master bedroom completes the entire second floor with floor-to-ceiling windows on both the front and the back for much needed light. The top floor houses two additional bedrooms and a laundry room.
