Design Philosophy Behind Japanese House II:

When Functionality Meets Elegance

MK Mario Kleff, December 17, 2022

The mandate was clear: create a unique, secure structure that mirrors the tranquility of the ocean it overlooks. Mario Kleff's ingenuity led to a design devoid of ground-floor windows, an embodiment of security. With towering walls, mammoth columns, and an edifice occupying the entire plot, the blueprint reflected profound inspiration from the Japanese script symbolizing 'home'.

Artistry Beyond the Walls:

Interior Grandeur and Design Choices

Inside, the house tells a different story. Boasting a basement parking, a living room, 5 bedrooms, and a plethora of amenities, every corner reflects a blend of brutalist architecture with Thai contemporary touches. Yet, while the exterior is purely Kleff's vision, the interiors carry the personal touch of the homeowner, adding a unique personality to the house.

Deriving inspiration from the Japanese word for "home", Mario Kleff envisioned a foundation that would be both sturdy and symbolic. Challenges, like the substitution of the iconic Sakura tree with a Thai Flame tree, added layers of complexity, yet the final product stood firm, echoing the ethos of Japanese aesthetics.

Choosing the Right Materials:

Engineering Mastery in Play

High-grade steel and concrete form the backbone of the Japanese House II. This choice not only ensured longevity but also allowed for creativity in the face of limitations, such as the lack of access to post-tensioning technology at the time.
