Jarken Ltd, an architectural firm based in Bangkok, has completed a domestic project in the city for a family of five, entitled House of 5

Utilising the key elements of intimacy, simplicity, memory, luxury and privacy as their inspiration, the 500 square metre urban hideaway is separated into different areas so that the five people occupying the space can co-exist harmoniously.

A two-floor private building for the parents contains the super-master bedroom alongside a bathing suite and access to the sky garden. The family wing spans three floors and consists of the main dining room, living and kitchen spaces, bedrooms and a semi-outdoor tropical foyer. There is also an adjacent under-level sunroom to allow for relaxation or socialising.

Listening to the clients' brief for both private and communal spaces, the architects and designers have created contrasting forms that allow for this illusion through their use of angles, mirrors and shapes. Walls are adorned with art and objects that all bear personal significance to the family, helping to take the clients on a journey down their very own memory lane.
