Unique 5 Bedroom home in Vientiane, Laos

We have just completed the architectural design and structural engineering of a unique home to be built in Vientiane, Laos.  The client gave us a very clear vision of the home they wanted, even providing us with a virtual 3D model.  We then took this initial concept and refined it, suggesting aesthetic and structural design changes to achieve the final design shown below.

The home is around 450 square metres in area and has five bedrooms and 6 bathrooms.  The large 6m x 12m  lounge/dining will feature a gravity defying wooden tread cantilever staircase protruding from the wall.  This leads to the master bedroom suite which occupies the entire second floor and includes walk in closet, large bathroom with spa bath, study and an extensive balcony.  Another unique feature of this house is the  large kitchen which is completely open to the garden on two sides blurring the boundary between the outside and inside. The kitchen leads onto a large covered terrace that runs the length of the home.  This terrace will look out onto a large swimming pool.
