khiankhai home & studio by sher maker


khiankhai home & studio holds an open-air terrace that links its different floors 

 

set in the rural scenery of chiangmai, thailand, khiankhai home & studio is a two-story wooden residence completed by architect sher maker. the main body is dispersed along the length of the land, with an open-air central terrace holding a white meranti tree that links all spatial functions together. the upper level — clad in wood — accommodates the kitchenhall, bedroom, and living spaces. the lower level, meanwhile, is covered in concrete and holds storage spaces and a music studio.

a half-sunken home emphasizing transition in material + height

 

looking at the front elevation, khiankhai home & studio appears to be half-sunken into the sloped land. this volumetric display clearly adapts to the dramatic site topography while emphasizing a transition to higher grounds. stressing that transition is the visual separation of the lower floor from the upper level using different materials to cloak the exterior façades. the architect dispersed the wood element across the house and elevated it with traditional lanna tiling — a common technique used in northern thailand.

construction wise, the project resorted to simply building techniques adopted by local crafstmen. no need to resort to sophisticated methods argues maker. the goal was to carve out a clear and direct architectural language that does not shy away from the beauty of imperfections.
