Kuanchanok Pakavaleetorn’s family home features in today’s newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter features Thai architect Kuanchanok Pakavaleetorn’s family home in Bangkok.

Pakavaleetorn, founder of Kuanchanok Pakavaleetorn Architects, designed her own family home to prioritise privacy and airflow due to the house’s busy and polluted urban setting.

55 Sathorn is arranged around a large atrium, allowing windows to face inwards rather than outwards. The facade also incorporates sliced openings, strategically placed to encourage the breeze to flow through the building.

Readers are impressed. One called it, “Fantastic and fascinating”.
