Architectkidd Invents a Unique Shower for a Bangkok Flat

A very spartan shower room is built from reclaimed wood on a balcony in a Bangkok high rise apartment building by the Thai architecture group Architectkidd.

To allow for cross breezes in the corner apartment, the layout of the perforated screens was designed to receive Bangkok’s typical south-west breezes.

The wooden screens are adjustable to create a different space on the balcony.

This way, when the balcony is not used as a shower, the screens can be moved to make a larger outdoor space, and that entering the apartment, you have an uninterrupted view of the Bangkok skyline.

The idea behind the outdoor shower was to make double use of a confined space.

On two sides, there are views out across the center of the city of Bangkok, including across it’s largest waterways.

The renovation revealed the interior structure of the walls, which the architects left exposed creating a spare and contemporary look.

This is echoed in the chunky wood of the kitchen counter that extends hugely across the back wall of the apartment to create a sense of spaciousness in the open living/kitchen space.

Exposed concrete walls, floors and ceilings give the apartment a spartan feeling that that the architects incorporate into the renovation.

To create the unique screens, the architects worked with a local carpenter who used an assortment of reclaimed hard woods, honed and oiled to make the shower screen, scavenged from building sites in old Bangkok.
