This Modern House Was Built On The Rooftop Of An Apartment Building

This Modern House Was Built On The Rooftop Of An Apartment Building

WARchitect has designed a modern wood house on top of an apartment building in Bangkok, Thailand.

Previously, the rooftop was only used to keep water tanks, leaving a lot of empty space, so the owner wished to build a small house there for his own use.

To avoid creating a contrast between this house and the apartment below, the architects designed the house setback from the edge of the building so that no one could see it from public roads.
