Sandwiched between a village road and an expanse of forest and rice fields on a heavily sloping plot, this home and studio in Thailand by Sher Maker Architects was inspired by the lay of the land around it. And the land certainly pushed the architects towards creating a captivating building, constructing large areas of terracing, digging into the slope, and embracing a multilevel approach to syncing the home with its surrounding environment. The elements of treehouse design are both playful and necessary, with exterior staircases leading up to sheltered terracing that creates a beautiful example of indoor-outdoor living.
The more traditional side of the home is sunk into the slope and constructed using corrugated plastic, lanna tiles, and wood, to match the bordering forest beyond. The family home contains extensive living areas along with a home music studio. Follow the studio on Instagram.
