Inly Studio designs curved double-walled house in Chiang Mai to preserve residents’ privacy

October 27, 2020

Following the most important aspect of the client’s brief that centered on privacy, architecture practice Inly Studio came up with an architectural language that respected spatial boundaries for a house in northern Thailand’s Chiang Mai city.

With privacy forming the singularity of this project,  the entire house called the Hidden House is defined through a double-wall skin. The primary white skin wall that embraces the whole space acts as a fence for privacy but the introverted space, in contrast, is lively behind this fence wall.

In order to ensure flexibility in the first-floor living space, the architects created an open plan system for interactive activities such as the kitchen, living room, and pool. Despite the walls, there is a seamless flow of spaces as they transition from one space to another. The duplex level of the semi-living room features a relaxed but intimate atmosphere.

Despite the solidity of the wall that does not disrupt the privacy,  but the gap between the primary wall and the second wall brings in natural light creating a view towards the panoramic vertical garden.
