Near to this place of residence, there is the famous floating market located. The market is open daily and nearby people visit there regularly. Around the vicinity, you can still experience the profound Thai way of living. Many people gather around the market and the old Thai culture and traditions can still be witnessed here.

Sala, is nothing but in Thai is meant as a building or place of living, that is built and used as a relaxing place for people. There are plenty of Salas around the country. You can find such in many places like Schools or Temples. The builders wanted to make the owners of the house feel the canal breeze, have a peaceful and relaxing time at the backyard watching the boats pass by in the canal, and still have a grasp over the Thai culture and atmosphere.

The owner wanted the house to build for two generations of people. So, the constructors had to keep that in mind. The architects constructed two different complexes for the same which are connected through a common terrace. At first view, it may seem that the two complexes are built as one but they are not as they are different, just connected by the terrace. Many places inside are shared by both the families such as Kitchen, Alluring Swimming pool. Both the families love cooking together and have quality time spent together around the kitchen. Check out this beautiful W-house structure.

The ventilation system of the house is really good as the wind comes to the rooms from all directions. There is a cantilever shading placed which protects the house from excessive sunlight. Simple materials like teak wood, steel, and concrete are used in the construction of this house.
