Prim House
by Studio Locomotive

Studio Locomotive

Studio Locomotive has designed a self-sufficient home for young homeowners in Thailand.

This unassuming pet-and-plant-welcome home was built debt-free for an ambitious millennial in her mid-twenties. The home has provided a necessary living convenience on an unstressful investment.

The home is self-sustainable, with low ongoing home expenses, and represents a result of an empathic design-thinking by dealing with the disadvantageous effects of socio-economic shifts that has turned homeownership into an unrealistic dream for younger generations.

This project has been longlisted in the urban house category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
