The quest of the project is to design a home for a family of 5 members to stay on the weekend. The main idea is a home with a zen garden, court yard. Also, the design must be in zen style combined with Lanna. So, the home was design with spaces in the middle to be the 3 court yards. The zen stone garden is surrounded by balcony for meditation, Japanese pond that creates peaceful feeling before entering the home, and Japanese green garden for relaxation. The building was design in country style , which open for the wind to flow in without the help from air conditioner and also open for the light which responses to integrate with nature. The shape of the building was designed in Lanna style using local material which gives rawness of modern home structure that get along with the concept of back to origin / elements, such as the long roof in the front that welcome its guest, which inspired from the old Lanna style.
