Bangkok : Revisiting the Bhuthorn

The Bhuthorn - Bhuthorn Suite

During my short stopover in Bangkok in December 2010, I stayed at a captivating and charming Bed & Breakfast named the Bhuthorn, set up by two local architects, Direk and Chitlada Senghluang. When I revisited the city once again, I specially request for a tour of this beautiful shophouse and the management very graciously showed us around the shophouse.

The Bhuthorn - Windows

Unlike the facadism practised by conservations in Singapore, the Bhuthorn retained most of its original structure and materials like the paint on the ceiling to the load-bearing structure. These windows for example, were originally from other parts of building and put together on the second floor as a set of rotating windows.

For the rest of the story, I shall let the photographs do the talking.
