PASANG

Although set in a rustic landscape of a mountainous lowland village, surrounded by small fields, fruit orchards and streams, this café building has a distinctively contemporary look—with clean lines and sharp edges made out of glass, steel and wood. Using local materials (old wood) and a natural colour palette, it seeks to be an architectural showcase that identifies with the local community as well as the context of farming and animal husbandry.

The concept was based on the vernacular Lanna culture and building style, and combined with modern techniques of prefabrication, relates to the residents, whether young or old.
