Kulapat Yantrasast is an architect of Thai origin who came to revolutionize modern architecture with great designs, ideas and innovation. His first contact with the architecture was at the age of 10, when his small house suffered some damage, so his father asked him to redesign it. From that moment he felt great attraction to architecture and design.
Kulapat graduated from Chulalongkorn University with honors and later performed MSc and PhD at the University of Tokyo.
In Tokyo he had the opportunity to meet the great architect Tadao Ando, with whom he has collaborated on some projects.
In 2003 Kulapat came to L.A. where he made an architecture office called “WHY ARCHITECTURE”, which seeks to create sustainable architecture, unique and that fits the characteristics of each location. One of his most amazing projects was the house design he had made in Venice California.
This incredible project used few materials and a single structure system. The project was based on a concrete structure with walls and monolithic slabs, combining glass and vains with some details of marble and wood. The house is oriented toward the beach for the best views and the project was accommodated so that all spaces had excellent views over the pool and the beach. Large windows were also used for better lighting.
This amazing project has the ability to show how anyone with simple lines and few materials can achieve a masterpiece.
Is a small building created for the purpose of accommodating modern offices. This project is based on functionality; to do this we optimized the spaces because the proportions of the land were not the best.
The idea was to create basement parking, getting 100% of buildable area. The building features are: basement, 3 floors and a roof garden. Each floor has restrooms, four independent offices and stairs.
The style of this project is modern, for it is based on straight lines, using the combination of materials in the same range of colors, textures and fine materials with near perfect symmetry.
The design is based on three outdated cubes, the two cubes in the background form the main body of the structure, while the front cube is the staircase. The project also has terraces intercepting between its sides and floors allowing an architectural rhythm that gives identity to the building.
