Contrasting synergy is what we see at the 2 Houses at Nichada Village in Bangkok, Thailand with these smart and stylish structures offering 2 completely different perspectives on interior design. Crafted with care by Alkhemist Architects to meet the needs of 2 brothers who wanted to live close to one another, this interesting project showcases how one can fashion 2 strikingly different interiors in homes that sit next to one another even while incorporating a common thread. The 2 independent buildings are connected by a common patio and pool area and the living area of one is visually connected with the other using sliding glass doors.
Even though both the houses seem similar from the outside, they present an entirely different look as you step indoors. The residence of the elder brother features a cooler, more contemporary style with white, gray and blue shaping the backdrop. Reflecting the taste of a man who enjoys his outdoors and is a golfer by profession, this home has an open living area that flows into the pool zone and the bedrooms on the top level also seem connected with the public spaces below. The second house of the younger brother has more or less the same floor plan, but the dark, industrial style of the residence provides a perfect retreat for this party-loving night club entrepreneur!
You can see a distinct change in both ambiance and theme in both the houses even as common elements like exposed and painted brick walls, sliding glass doors and a largely similar silhouette connect both the homes. Modern décor, industrial-style lighting and a love for the outdoors cap off this nifty project where common features bind diverse interiors. [Photography: Ketsiree Wongwan]
