Designer Home: Marc Gerritsen’s Naked House in Thailand

Taipei-based architectural photographer Marc Gerritsen created a “naked” house for himself in Thailand.

Entrenched in a mountainside, overlooking fantastic mountain views, this house offered a retreat from city living and a return to basics.

Inspiration from architect:

The house was a return to the basic values in life: good clean air, wide open space, quiet solitude. With these basic values you can be in a space that is uncluttered, and your mind can become still. That’s also the reason behind the very basic materials that I have used: concrete, wood, steel and glass. There are no embellishments. The focus is on the space rather than the materials.
