“We convinced that real architecture will leaves indelible trace in our minds by only elementary architectural action.”

Housescape Design Lab as Architects

The gimme shelter is a commercial area that consists of a cafe, restaurant, office and workshop area. that replaced the old warehouse in the parking lot of the Chiang Mai Rattanakosin Hotel To become a multi-function area, architect initially wanted a warehouse area in the city with criteria of car park and began to develop more space utilization when exploring and renovating the building. The main program is ranked first by cafes and restaurants. The design office, workshop and garden are hidden in a back space between surrounding building. Mentality of renovated using the language of the original warehouse combined with simply plane for separating the space and bringing in light into the building. It uses industrial materials that are commonly available but are adapted to the atmosphere. We will find that the surplus is not borrowed from anything other than the essence of the original area's solution. It is a method for improving the building that has been chosen to collect traces from things that are fit.

The bar area is open to prepare meals. In order to see the activities of the food from the kitchen to the customers with the intention of making the restaurant an open space People are able to talk and have an equal level of interaction both at the dining table and with the restaurant staff. It's the design language that was intentionally inserted into this restaurant space. And there is also a small discussion area. that draws conversations throughout the design urban development, social and political dimension that welcomes both the general public and students can come and talk without referring to the chronological and formal academic discussions. These activities are interspersed in the mahogany orchards separated by the space behind the shop. without separating the users of the area
