AAd：如今的住房问题不仅仅是因为现代世界的普遍单一化，更因为人们已经逐渐丧失了与历史、民族文化和地方自然的联系。各地材料衰竭的原因各不相同，也包括不考虑地域的独特性，在世界各地使用同样的技术。我们建筑师有责任批判性地切实参与到地域主义中来，要努力寻求更具创造性的解决方案，以审慎和可持续性地方式塑造我们的社会。最近，在东南亚地区拥有10年以上的住宅和建筑设计经验的Ayutt and Associate design (简称AAd)公司，就通过一个季风住宅项目展示了他们在可持续设计方面的才华和区域经验。
AAd：Problems of modern housing today evoke not only because of a single-world universalization, but also a loss of connections to history, national cultures, and local nature. Material failure varies from place to place. The use of the same technologies throughout the world does not always take the uniqueness of places into their accounts. These challenges of engaging Regionalism critically and tangibly are left to be a responsibility of the architects, who will need to fight and seek for more creative solutions in order to shape our society with care and sustainability. With a 10-year-plus experience in designing housing and architecture particularly in the Southeast Asian region, Ayutt and Associate design or AAd brings up their talent and regional experience in sustainable design and demonstrates them through this recently launched project, the Monsoon House.

Located in Trat, the easternmost province of Thailand, a private, peaceful residence was built along the coastline of the Thai Gulf—on the smooth sandy ground, embedding amidst the rubber plantation, and standing against the monsoon wind. It is in this astonishing setting, mere steps away from the sea, that the Monsoon House was built and named accordingly by Ayutt and Association design (AAd). To minimize the monsoon’s impact on the building and landscape, the AAd team did full research on weathering protection, as well as coastal erosion and residential privacy.
The language and logic of the house are designed in response to the wind loads and storm protection as its location, Trat, is known to be one of the wettest provinces in the country. Understand the topography of the locus and not disturb the coastal nature, the house compositions are found on a horizontal plane in order to compensate for the strong wind. While the house is treated as a refined Tropical Modern work, it also respectively responds to regional climatic conditions, which is hot and humid year-round, and demonstrates the creative use of modern materials such as aluminum cladding strip with traditional elements such as wood and stone.

In the rainy season, life is a race, only the fastest person can escape the monsoon wet. This house possesses these seasonal moods. It becomes a statement of man toward nature. In this project, the use of the 10-meter-long eave is to protect the sheltered areas from the splash of heavy monsoon rains, as well as to provide ventilation of air and humidity driven by the winds from the ocean. This extra-long extended eave is also a poignant example of the reinterpretation of a Thai tradition element, the steep gable roof. Here, the roofs are designed without the rain gutters, so as to accommodate the disposal of heavy seasonal downpours as quickly as possible. In the hot dry season, the same eave together with the trees carefully planted shields the house’s main structure from the strong sun coming from the south.

From the main entrance, the Monsoon House does not exactly present a friendly face to the monsoon season. Aluminum Strips cladding from side to side and bottom to top is all that one sees, an opening for fresh air but hiding from the outside perspectives. An exact calculation of aluminum-cladding apertures reflects a context refined and natural resilience—could hardly be imagined. This is because they tend to equate engagement with openness, the measure of which is visual continuity or literal transparency. These aluminum cladding facades deployed throughout the master bedroom played a salient role in the passive cooling of the interior. During wintertime, they act as insulation, filtering the excessive coldness and moisture derived from mountains and the sea. While in summer, they keep the building naturally cool and reducing the need for air conditioning, together with affording safety and privacy to the room inside.

The path of the sun and the sequence of vertical and horizontal plains of this house also coincide with the rhythm of day and night. The master bedroom’s adjustable aluminum-cladding panels transform the connection between the exterior and interior spaces. When the master bedroom wants to reconcile with the outer world, the connection is displayed through its openings and changing enclosures, shifts in mood and patterns of behavior. The aluminum-cladding apertures regulate the light and secure the silence of the night. Its lighting-designed mechanism is a challenge, to make the master bedroom appeared floating above the pool’s existence. The master bedroom facades are a reference to the outside world.
The layout of the house was initially planned to serve all generations of dwellers—from children to elders—with a universal design, which is usable to the greatest extent possible, regardless of their ages. Thus, the heart of the house is a swimming pool. At this point, its function connects generations together and creates a gathering space, reflecting the lifestyle of the extended Thai family. Its horizontal sun terrace reflects the activity of the day. At sunset, a shadow casts from the terrace steps remind us of the fading day, while the surrounding trees await the sunlight of the morning. Thus, the swimming pool terrace is the place the day begins and ends.

The goal-route promenade through this house is straightforward, where each entry of the Monsoon House feeds directly into each family unit. For example, access to the master bedroom can be achieved by the private pathway close to the sun terrace between the main foyer and the swimming pool. However, the layout of the overall building components is still confirming that all volumes are relative. It can be broken as two family units or embraced as an entity. In this manner, it will be able to sustain the solitude of each family, at the same time, expressing the living culture of having extended families. The boundary of each unit erases itself, as it combines with the next, to constitute the whole. With a plan to further build an expansion for the future extended families around the swimming pool, the central space is still being shared and returns to the singular.

As the interior confirms the existence of movement and touch of the family members, the exterior reveals its response to the gentle landscape. The movement of the ramp and steps open up to the landscape, and the landscape provides varying experiences to the house members. The intention of the designers is not to build a garden, but to plant a new eco-living system. The areas of green contrast with the sky. The self-sustainable park with its landscape of tropical fruits, rubber trees, fish pond, and cage-free animal terrain is very precious and scares. The former existing trees are honored, as the landscape master plan gives room for their participation. The trees turn toward the sun and wind and protect the building according to the seasons. The water pond is built in order to pay homage to the Monsoon rains. Its water is used to provide sustenance for plants both inside and out, linking the house with the cycle of the park. This honoring of natural context, framed in a place of genius loci, is the beginning of a search for a higher order of sustainable modern architecture.
Monsoon House, therefore, is another architectural design which aims to elevate the quality of life of its residents, at the same time, respecting the constraints of the land topography, weathering, local belief, limited budget, and voices of family members both at the present and in the future.
