The HACHI Skyscape Is An Elevated Rooftop Abode For Minimalists

Looking for the perfect urban area to build a home? Good luck finding a private space, acquiring permits, and dealing with zoning regulations. These days, it’s difficult to find an inner-city lot that’s available for purchase, let alone project-ready; especially in Bangkok, one of the most populated cities in the world. Luckily, the locale’s WARchitect design studio takes pride in thinking outside of the box, establishing a one-of-a-kind dwelling that puts elevation in an entirely new light.

The HACHI Skyscape seeks to redefine the industry’s idea of wasted space, utilizing one of the city’s multitudinous apartment buildings in an odd and unconventional way. To create such a unique home, WARchitect decided to place it atop a five-story dwelling in the middle of Bangkok, neglecting the need for a long and arduous validation process. A well-groomed central courtyard, clad in stone, wood, and intricate lighting, acts as the centerpiece for the home’s sectional layout. Inside, Balau wood planks, premium, minimalist furniture, and length-running windows provide denizens a comfortable space to wind down after a day of exhausting work. From the building’s rooftop, panoramic views of the city’s Lat Phrao district are easily accessible, making it a scenic, secluded escape from the qualms of daily life.
