A description of the text provided by the architect. Paragraphs are made up of many words. The word cafe comes from the fact that it is located in a gas station on the main road between Chiang Rai and Toon districts, giving users a unique architectural experience. Act to transform this region and situation into new attractions on the main tourist routes of the country’s most visited states.
There is a paragraph cafe inside the gas station. It’s not the same cafe as the stables at gas stations in the past. High-speed zone users of service stations do not spend much time in this area.Gas station Convenience stores, shops, public toilets in the regular zone area will take 5-15 minutes
The long time zone of the service station set by architects to design cafes in this zone was developed as a place for users to relax while traveling. To relieve fatigue. A: It creates a perception of architecture by solving spatial design problems, creating an enclosed space, and creating an atmosphere that is different from the outside of the space. By using architectural shapes to divide the space into distinct proportions, it is balanced, simple, uncomplicated and reduces the understanding of space use.Allow users to spend more time in the area
B: It solves the problem of the location of buildings on the inner edge of the area, but still serves the main purpose of bringing people into the area. The first step in the design Adjust the axis of the building so that it is visible from the front door of the project.
Budget constraints and the need for existing building materials that lead to the reuse of old building materials The initial project site was a concrete block factory, which is a common building material used in the region. And there are many original materials from liquidation. Therefore, we reuse materials as a key component of our project to save money and raise architectural awareness. Through the usual building materials used locally.
It conveys a view of the use of materials in a way that is different from its intended purpose. There are two parts: A: Concrete blocks are placed throughout the experimental process. It is then used as a vertical wall that surrounds that area and separates it from the rest of the project. It is designed to have a structure hidden inside the wall to receive lateral loads.
B: The cafe building is designed to use a special structure. Provides the need to connect the internal space to the external space as much as possible. By reducing the use of vertical structures, for example column structures in interior spaces.
Expect this small commercial architecture. It allows people to understand and understand the importance of architectural design that fills the sensory potential and creates space.As the architect summarized in the paragraph
