BAAN CITTA Residential by Catherine Cheung

Home > Winners > #32031


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
BAAN CITTA

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residential

INSPIRATION:
The key design concept was to create a Shambhala on Earth with a mythical kingdom described as the Pure Land in ancient Buddhist texts. Buddhists believe that the creation of Shambhala is the creation of the ultimate spiritual paradise. In setting out to do so, the designer took an unorthodox approach; instead of playing with form, space and objects of the interior, the designer focused on playing with the ambience and feel of the home to create a flow of positive energy and to build a serene utopia.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The key design concept was to create a Shambhala on Earth which a mythical kingdom described as the Pure Land in ancient Buddhist texts.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The home owners strongly believed that by being in the presence of pleasure, peace and a pressure-free environment would follow. The designer translated this conviction into a retreat that boded well with nature.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This Project finished in January 2013 in BANGKOK, THAILAND.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The interior expands into an infinitely open space, allowing the home owners a sense of carefree freedom. The house is leveled with different platforms and staircases as a way to create partitions to the different zones in the house.

5000 square feet, 25m x 10m x 2 level, 2.5-meter height, 50-meter standard swimming pool

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The interior expands into an infinitely open space, allowing the home owners a sense of carefree freedom. The house is leveled with different platforms and staircases as a way to create partitions to the different zones in the house. This not only allows for privacy but also allows for an unobstructed view of and invitation for the natural environment that envelopes the exterior.

CHALLENGE:
The design demonstrates the modernity of the joys of colour on a neutral palette amidst the colours of Earth in nature. Floor-to-ceiling windows further allow for the play of the natural and the artificial colours to co-exist in one residence.
