This thesis explores and documents the evolution of a Thai house, which has transformed drastically over the years to meet changes in social aspiration. The result of this investigation had generated the design principles for a new single family house, which can be used as a prototype for future development in Thailand. The application of the ensuing guidelines, which are responsive to the local climate, technology and culture, is presented as an alternative to current construction practice.
