Cingan Retreat
Chiang Mai spiritual retreat
The project, located on a family-owned property south of Chiang Mai, is a harmonious blend of tradition and modernity. The existing traditional house, elevated on timber piers, sets the tone for this serene development. Our vision embraces the natural beauty and cultural heritage of the area, creating a tranquil retreat that offers a unique and flexible rental experience. The methodology of construction was defined with the local builder. Rainforest timber logs embed in concrete stumps support the roof and floors. At ground level a tiled concrete plinth serves as the indoor/outdoor platform, first levels and the building envelope were all covered with rainforest timber weatherboard. Our client supervised the construction as he moved on site. We perform regular visits from Sydney to ensure the design and the execution were according to plan.
