LOCATION | Wipawadee 64 Rd., Bkk, Thailand
OWNER | Sukpisan's Family

The home-office of Sukpisan Family is a building clustered which contains a large green space in between two houses, one clubhouse, and one office. Since there is no sanctuary area before, so they desired to have their own sacred things which can protect them from all unfortunate events.

Sukpisan SHRINE is a ‘Brahma shrine’ combining with a ‘house of Guardian spirit’. Since the overall context is modern contemporary architecture, the shrine was designed by following the context which finally becomes a modern-like shrine but still keep traditional function as it should be.

The architecture has 3 gables, big one, medium one, and small one which is for MAIN ENTRANCE, BRAHMA, and GUARDIAN SPIRIT respectively. Floor level has been elevated for 1 meter because the shrine should be placed on higher level than the house. It is located in a large green space in between each buildings which can easily access and worship. Moreover, Brahma has 4 faces, in our belief, 4 faces can see things and protect us in 360 degrees.
