Big 3 House @ Myanmar | Taweecool Architects | International Residential Architecture Awards 2022

Taweecool Architects: Winner of International Residential Architecture Awards 2022. BIG 3 House @ Myanmar is located in the prime site of city of Yangoon. In a plot with large Burma padauk trees, the client sought to live in proximity to nature-based environment, that it must become a characteristic part of the architecture and that it gets inhabited as well as the identity of unconventional house in Yangoon.

The owner desires a house designing as hospitality environment for the family. The Two-story home has boasts a fully functional 1st floor, including living, dining, family space, working, fitness, maid, as well as a pantry, garage, pool and outdoor pool terrace. The 2nd Floor contains the master bedroom, 3 bedroom and Buddha room. 

As master planning and building placement, each constructed space has a visual relationship and a direct physical connection with at least Big tree and central courtyard space. While the path clearly defines the central garden of the house as semi-private, the living spaces provide their own character to their gardens with a sense of coolness.
