    What is this style called?

    I am no architect, and have no idea what this floor plan style is called. I have seen homes laid out in this manner in Italy, Spain and Brazil, is it popular in Thailand?

    If the picture does not work it is basically an open floor plan that has the various rooms actually built as separate buildings and the deck or grounds would become more or less your halls to access the other rooms.

    Looks sort of Balinese.

    ...and nice apart from the inconvenience of the kids bedroom backing onto the business-end wall of the mummies and daddies' "poolview" bedroom, and sharing the bogs...

    like a Villa, nice if you keep the roofs simple, easy to mantain in the long run.

    use Con-wood or simlar decking, longer lasting then timber.

    It's too far from the kitchen to the dining area and that's assuming you have sliding doors.
    If you have to go through the thai kitchen as well then you will need a servant.
    Make sure the servant has a large umbrella or your food will get wet during the rainy season

    I think it's called "get bitten to fuck by mosquitos the size of bats".

    I think mom and pop's love shack is in the relatively secluded lower right corner so make as much noise as you want.

    Have seen similar in Thailand. Raised covered walkways connect all the structures.

    Yes exactly, I have seen it called a detached home, but don't know if that is the official term for this type of structure. I only posted here because so many seem to know their buildings I figured it would be an easy one.

    I'd call it a compound. It's not like a Roman Villa, a Roman villa was normally a single structure built around a central open-air atrium. Looks very nice, by the way, some good advice on the practicalities on this thread.

    Yes I agree on the advice here. I couldn't imagine the pain it must be to try and handle the upkeep, to think that every time you head to another room you are tracking in all that dirt from the outside again.

    Not really interested in the design, no where near ready to build or even consider owning over there, I have been a multi-home owner for nearly a decade and am looking forward to renting for a change as I have recently sold my homes. I just didn't know what to call that style home.

    Many that design here in Phuket, Thai Balinese style but the kitchen should be attached to the main block

    Unfortunately Con-Wood gets quite hot - hotter than wood or tiles of the the colour.

    Traditional Thai houses were compounds. Normally had a common use area in center with sleeping quarters in separate structures connected via covered walkways. Same idea can be used for just about any style one wants.

    A bad but easy to find example.

    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Not sure where it is just snatched off the net. Yep, replicating the one in the pic would be a fortune.

    Cost way down if a more conventional design/construction method used.

    This is the place I think. Its a spa/resort in Nong Han Udon Thani about 10 minutes ride on the wave from my mil's place. I have heard the wife talk about but have been meaning to check it out for my self, I think i'll take a ride out there when I go back for
    songkran.

    Not convenient on so many levels! Locking up and security would be a nightmare....Maintenance is another hurdle. The layout with the kitchen far away from the dining area and the shared bathroom for the 2 smaller bedrooms is not practical....This is without a doubt Bali Style but I have seen much better examples of it...both in Indonesia and Thailand.
