Architecture: The Naked House by Marc Gerritsen


We were able to get some really great things done during our little hiatus. More writers onboard, cooler content stocked up and loaded, and more music in the stash to share too. So for the comeback, I wanted to start off with a property I thought was just as grand as our return to the posting life. As usual, if you like what you see or want more of what you don’t, email and let us know how you’re feeling. Now let’s get back to doing what it is we do..

Architectural photographer Marc Gerritsen presents the Naked House, a home he designed for himself in Koh Samui, Thailand. As life in Taipei is very hectic, Gerritsen created a home located in a quiet area with a fantastic view. Over three stories, the home includes two bedrooms on the bottom; the pool, living area and kitchen on the middle level; and an office on top, with the later addition of a bathroom, laundry room and pantry on the living room level. 

A freestanding open-air bathroom has also been added as the top room became a master bedroom which needed an en-suite, while the tank and plant room became a large open room with a swing bed. Underneath the deck, a steam room was added, and the space below the bedrooms now houses an office and maid’s room. In total, the private residence is now five stories and is still considered a work in progress.
