Sala Bang Pa-In

The resort is situated in a rural landscape of Ayutthaya, Thailand, surrounded by the river on two sides. The architectural design is a contemporary re-interpretation of the local rural landscape and intends to connect people to the life of the river and its atmosphere. The buildings and rooflines are scaled down to be in grain with the surrounding local houses. The materiality connects to the local materials and craftmanship. Yet the architecture is contemporary in its life and spatiality.
