Despite it being in absolute ruins, Bangkok-based Idin Architects managed to convert a former commercial building into one stunning home design. Located in the Thai capital, the gorgeous seven-story building is now home to four siblings that run the family's jewelry business on the ground floor. Read on for the details.
The renovation project began with a hollow, decrepit skeleton frame of two former commercial buildings. Using the existing framework and not much else, the architects were able to create a beautifully contemporary home with separate living quarters accessed by an elevator at the back of the building. Each family unit has two floors with ample living space, bedrooms and a kitchen. The top level is the community area, with an open-concept living space and dining room for the entire family.
Although the structure is located in bustling Bangkok, the home is quite serene, with large floor-to-ceiling windows that provide optimal natural light throughout. Additionally, a tall ficus tree rises through the core of the home, giving the contemporary interior a touch of nature.
