Furthermore, the characteristics of Thai people are changed their needs and wants over time regarding to trending and also uninterested in common places. “Len Len House” design project has been adapted those factors and designed base on human toy’s theme where they are able to customize their house whenever they wants and needs. The layout of house is flexible and each component is replaceable as well. To make house more special and completely up to personal needs over time, we based our design on material’s standard and also thought about returnable roof structure where we could return and recycle to new shape by adding materials or insulators with Landy Home (Thailand) Company Limited.
