This beautifully photographed volume showcases the Thai houses by the internationally renowned architect. Considered the Axel Vervoordt of Asia for his masterful use of ancient architectural elements and age-old materials, Ong-Ard Satrabhandhu is an architect whose unique style reflects its northern Thai-or Lanna-roots while keeping a firm footing in contemporary style. Lanna architecture is characterized by the concept of simplicity, nature, and focusing on discovery, not invention. In a meaningful and informed manner, Ong-Ard Architects preserves then adds to this classic style's simplicity with such contemporary touches as concrete floors and high, airy ceilings-creating a sophisticated juxtaposition between past and present. This presentation of Ong-Ard's most striking architectural works was photographed by the master photographer Francois Halard especially for this book. Featured here are his inviting homes, resorts, and hotels, each a serene oasis whether in the countryside or the city. The interiors-grand yet spacious gestures that highlight nature-inspired architectural spaces-will inspire both casual readers and interior design aficionados alike. Striking a balance between the historic and contemporary, this volume encapsulates Thailand's vast world influence and Ong-Ard's keen design insight. It will be a treasured read for a worldwide audience interested in interiors, design, and architecture.
