    Design Competition - Vote Here!

    OK, we have designs from Danblack, Humbert, Mooncake, Nawty, Norton and Splitlid. As usual, we have a ringer who will probably never post again once the competition has finished, but that's what happens when you don't get the rules sorted properly.

    You can catch all the design action here (design competition), but below are the basic designs from each contestant as a reminder.

    NORTON.

    Price approx 2.3M baht. Size approx 300 m2. 3 bedroom, 3 bath.




    HUMBERT

    Open plan with all rooms opening onto central courtyard with pool and garden.
    230 cm height glass sliding doors open to courtyard.
    Great room
    Professional kitchen with bar
    Dining area
    Maid quarters (or bedroom)
    Exercise room (or bedroom)
    3 baths
    Laundry room
    Master bedroom suite
    2 guest bedrooms
    Car port
    Swimming pool
    Wood decks

    Interior area: 310 square meters
    Construction cost: 10 million




    NAWTY

    Ground Level….carport on bottom right, enter house via large floating limestone steps over water. Carport big enough for 1 car and bike and maybe storage at rear. Outside toilet accessed from floating path, can also be accessed from inside via a door where the book/storage shelves are located on right side. Located outside gives shitting privacy when you have visitors, smells outside and plumbing is incorporated with above bathroom saving dosh. Enter into area beside kitchen, then enter huge open expanse, up to 6m ceiling above living and dining areas. All glass front with folding doors or mossie wire with shutters only. Centre spiral floating wood staircase up to master bedroom loft. Stone floor. Large wooden dining table. Mixture of large wooden posts, redwood at heights of 3m and 6m above ground. Large wooden centre beam. All exposed and natural finish. Living and dining areas open onto small deck with 2 or 3 steps down to main deck. This allows better viewing from the inside lounge. Deck and main living area opens in a ‘V’ shape to invite you outside and increase the viewing angle. Large wooden picnic table outside on deck with bbq on left. Spiral staircase down to bedrooms below. 2 bedrooms below built into the slope of the land, back and side bedroom walls can be very nice rock walls. Folding or sliding doors out onto patio under decking made of large limestone tiles. Shared bathroom for cost saving and as only intended for guests or family visits. Master bedroom/loft…..deck on the left side, bed to face the views and open onto the main living area but with lightweight folding doors for privacy when visitors around. Large built in closet to incorporate other storage areas. Bathroom half outside, privacy screen surrounding outside shower/bath….increase sex life. Toilet protected from outside view, but allows view of skyline while dumping…good for the system. Shingle roof, wooden rafters all exposed, waterproofing etc hidden with bamboo weave panels.




    MOONCAKE

    - Simple modern flare thai-style house w/ a typical thai-dutch roof
    - Compact open floor plan,…3 beds + 3 bths, & 2 cars garage
    - With separate kitchen/dinning for indoor/outdoor preference
    - Kitchen & that 3rd bath can be totally closed off from dinning room - by simple doors addition, to reduce the aircon bill
    - Enhance by dramatic middle covered breezeway w/ ceiling fan - for outdoor guests reception or - lounging around away from afternoon hot sun w/ open-close bifold doors
    - Main home indoor living room & dinning room - have huge glass accordian doors open to adjoining breezeway.
    - covered back view deck - away from rain and sun - for easy breezy entertainment & views enjoyment
    - House sits on “pilings” to minimize construction cost - esp on the hillside like this - adjustable based on slope.

    Approx area
    177.5 m( 1775 sf) ……main house (total)
    19.2 m (192 sf)……….middle breezeway
    52.2 m (520 sf)……….covered back view deck

    Approx cost …………2.5-3.0 mil bht....I THINK




    SPLITLID





    DANBLACK

    I was going for economy. I think this house could be built for well under 2m. It has comfortable sized rooms on only a 100m footprint. What is also not shown, is there is a 2nd floor over the bedrooms with a railing in front so you can look down into the livingroom.

    Unless someone was using another nic I cannot fathom the reason for any kind of punishment.
    The competition rules and requirements were loose, constantly evolving and all in fun anyway.
    Very curious.

    Neat thread and i was almost taken in by mooncake and the fancy grappics but Humbert ticks all the boxes for me.

    Nawty, is there anywhere designated for self administered medical procedures?

    Simple and cute are always what one needs to consider. Simple especially if the house is up country. Also, availability of locally sourced materials.

    Mooncakes is very standard and boring but.

    But she can draw nice and this adds to the lack of any wow factors.

    I like Humbert's and splitlid's designs equally but for completely different reasons. Having trouble voting.

    This is the full price as depicted in the drawing. Includes all kitchen cabinets, appliances, and furniture.

    Know the price for sure as I kept detailed records as the house was built.

    I like well designed minimalism, so i voted splitlid. For construction to budget I'd have to go with Norty though- eminently livable. Pity theres not two Polls.

    Who is that then? As far as I can see all the entries have made a number of posts so why would they leave? Unless you are not showing the design of the ringer that is

    I'd go for nawty but my three-year old drew a better concept on the wall this morning . . .


    Humbert's seems to have the wishlist filled.

    Excellent idea for a thread and poll

    Nawtys concept is good. Don't matter about the drawing or manipulating of software.

    Well done one and all

    I like Moonpie's solution. I'll give her a bowl of rice per day to design my house if I ever construct one.

    Of course, if it comes down to a tie, the self-vote will be discounted.
