Paul Raff Studio
Paul Raff Studio has designed a unique residential complex in Thailand with remarkable green design strategies. Its most novel feature is its Louver Facade System which was born from a simple idea to maximize landscape views while maintaining privacy for residents. Its dynamic sweeping forms echo local vernacular influences while functioning as shading system which can be adapted to any new building. This system reduces solar heat gain which in tropical climates - home to 41% of the world’s population- massively reduces energy consumption.
It is a powerful example of how Canadian architects can have a positive global impact.
