G. Thorough Skylight roofing will give the feeling of the glass house and make the areas of the dining room brighter and suitable for hanging the trees to create the fresh ambience. You can use the material like Translucent sheet for making the skylight roofing.

MATERIAL SOLUTION

Loft Style Wall Tile

When we talk about the Loft style, many people will always think of the using of the material which has the naked and raw surface. Currently there is another material which is commonly used in the construction.

That material is Brick, the more the bricks are mixed with the raw concrete, the cooler the raw concrete look we have. But for some areas which are not convenient to lay the bricks in rows e.g. the condominium room or the projects with the limited time of construction.

Wall Tiles – SCG Model True Nature, Rust Brick can be your interesting option. It can help change the wall to look good and to become newer. You can prepare the wall which you would like to install by cleaning it and draw the line to make it flat in order to set up the row of laying the tile.

After that you can apply and wipe off the tile fix on the wall and on the back of the tile then paste the tile, knock the tile gently and press it a second then finished.

c channel Wood plank

Furthermore the design of the raw concrete to show the steel structure of the building Is another element which can be found often in decorating the industrial Loft style. But for many areas which are not suitable for

using the steel for the real structure or the old structure which cannot accommodate the weight of the steel for decoration. You may use the decorative fiber cement wood SCG Model C-Channel which has the outstanding appearance, modern and it can be used for decoration instead of eaves, it can be used to covered inside the wall of the column or close the old structure in order to give the feeling of using the feel, but the weight is ligher and it is not rusty and also durable in any kind of climate for both external and internal building.

If you are looking for the new idea to decorate the house and the shop with the material from SCG or to consult about the house problem with the expert architects at SCG Experience, Ekamai – Ramindra Expressway and the new branch on the third floor at Design Village, Boonthavorn, Rajapruk Road.

Remarks: the material used above is the material which is equivalent to the Brand of SCG which is used for presentation of the new idea of the design only. It is not the real material used to design ONEDAY I PAUSE HOTEL.

For the city men, having a green space is considered difficult. With the high cost per square meter. Therefore, the main area of the house will be divided according the functions used inside the house more than the external area like gardens or lawns especially those people who live in the city who always resides in the condominium or in the town home which is more convenient to travel but have limited space for usage.

Verticle Garden Materials - SCG Modular Green - Resize

By increasing the green space, we can focus on the vertical gardening in order to create the natural ambience and make the limited area lively.

CHAPTER 1 : LANDIN

translucent Cafe Design Idea

The translucent Café with the cool look on the roadside of Baan RamPueng, Muang District has been designed under the concept of the returning to the society and maintain and keep the nature to be the same and designed under the limited budget to maximize the value.

Therefore this café can be used during day and night time and to encourage more people to use the area efficiently.

The designer will start from designing together with the local contractor by using the material which is easy to obtain and easy to build and construct therefore, the turbid polycarbonate board will be used and will be covered inside on the surface of the building by designing the column to have the same size of the turbid polycarbonate in order to have less material waste.

Green material to design Cafe

Besides covering inside with the translucent material, the designer will create the interest for the people by installing the wooden door jamb and window jamb at the corner of the building to draw people’s attention and make the brown color of the wood contrasted with the building which creates the warm feeling and the wall covered inside with the translucent material which will help bring the natural light to the building.

It will make the ambience become clear and airy and also it will help to see the shade of the big trees outside like to bring the green color to the building. During the night time, once all the lights have been turned on, this building will look beautiful as if it were the light box shining inside the square building which is the simple unique gimmick.

 IDEAS TO GRAB

Eco friendly Cafe design idea

A. Level up the area in order to be clearly separated by building the corridor around the building. We will use the fiber cement wood or wood substitute which has the characteristic of sun and light resistance and easy maintenance.

B. Create the interest for the area inside and outside by covering inside the ceiling to be inclined along the roof.

Design Idea for Green Cafe and restaurant

Economy Cafe Design Idea

C. Fill the café with the warmth and interest with the installation of wooden windows at the corner of the building

D. Choose to decorate the counter with the grey color tone in order to match with the steel structure and the ladder behind the counter which will be united with the dull translucent sheet covered inside the wall.

Green Eco friendly Material to build green cafe and restaurant - Eng

Currently, the energy saving for the buildings or the shelters can be done in many ways. Not only the designing like using the potentiality of the surrounding context or the sunlight direction or rain but also the usage of the updated technology and innovation or the material selection which can be used and can be a part of the buildings or the shelters like the translucent sheet of SCG.

There are 9 color tone. Each color tone will have the different translucent level of the color tone which depends on the application of the products usage. The product body is made from the special types of Polyester resins and high quality fiberglass which will be laminated by the anti UV film up to 99% but it still can bring more natural light to the buildings without turning on the light during day time.

Therefore it will help save the energy for the usage outside and inside the buildings e.g. using the translucent sheets to separate the space for the rooms, using the translucent sheets for roofing, the awnings and the garages

Furthermore,  SCG translucent sheet can resist all kinds of climate and can be quickly and easily installed because of the light weight and SCG translucent sheets are easily transferred and moved and are not the burden to the contractor. They can be used in many ways of works

There are 9 types of color for SCG translucent sheets

  1. 1. Icey (93% transparency)
  2. 2. Andaman Green (68% transparency)
  3. 3. Orange (58% transparency)
  4. 4. Opaque White (56% transparency)
  5. 5. Sea Blue (54% transparency)
  6. 6. Dark Grey Blue (55% transparency)
  7. 7. Dark Blue (31% transparency)
  8. 8. Light Brown(26% transparency)
  9. 9. Dark Grey (16% transparency)

Remarks: The material recommended above is the material which is equivalent to SCG Brand and is used for the presentation of the concept of design idea only.  This is not the real material used to design LANDIN café.

3 Factors to make your house cosy and comfortable

Comfortable House Guideline

3 Factors to make your house cosy and comfortable

“Let’s find out 3 Factors to make your house cosy and let’s see  comfortable house guideline for the increasing intense global warming every year”

Tropical region like South Asia, South East Asia, and Africa climate is subtropical throughout most of the country. These regions have hot climate throughout the year. If you would like to talk about the ‘‘Cosy and Comfortable” condition. Many people may understand that by lowering down the temperature in the house will create the “Cosy and Comfortable” condition. 

However, in fact, the Cosy and Comfortable Condition consists of many elements e.g. temperature, wind speed, humidity or moisture, dressing and activities performing.

Comfortable House Guideline 2

The Cosy and Comfortable Condition means the condition of the temperature and the humidity of the air which make people feel cosy and comfortable, not hot, not viscous or uncomfortable. The Cosy and Comfortable Condition consists of temperature, humidity, wind speed which hits our body e.g.  Sometimes we go to the beach where the temperature is not hot. The wind flows but it is too humid, we will feel uncomfortable. 

Comfortable Bed Room Idea

However if we stay in the room with the air conditioning unit, we will feel comfortable because the air conditioning unit gives the cool temperature and blows the wind to make the air move and flow and at the same time it will ventilate the humidity.  That’s why we feel comfortable but sometimes the electricity bill rises.  Therefore in order to create the cosy and comfortable condition for living, we have to consider the following three factors

1. Heat Shield Technology

SCG Aluminium Foil Sheet for heat reflection and Insulation
SCG Aluminium Foil Sheet for heat reflection and Insulation for heat protection

The important parts of the house are Roof, Ceiling and Partition.
When the sun shines, it will hit the roof which is on the top of the house and has more spacious area, therefore the roof will have a the great impact on the temperature inside the house.

The installation of SCG aluminium foil sheet can protect the heat directly. Heat Protection and Reflection, can reflect UV heat upto 95% and the installation of SCG Insulation Model Stay Cool above the ceiling in order to protect the heat from the spacious roof passing through the ceiling to the house.  Furthermore, it can ventilate the heat inside the spacious roof to outside by making the heat ventilator e.g. air ventilator in front of the house

How to making air ventilator on the roof to reduce heat
Making air ventilator on the roof can naturally reduce the heat

1) Making a high gable roof to let the heat float to the upper level with an air ventilation compartment or install the Eaves Liner.

2) Making a two-step roof for ventilation between each step of the roof.

SCG Ventilation Board - material to reduce heat from roof
(Left): Example of the patterns of the ventilated ceiling (Right): The installation of Eaves Liner

The Torre Guinigi is a tower in Lucca, Tuscany, central Italy. It is a typical example of local Romanesque-Gothic architecture. The height of the tower is 45 meters with a total of 232 steps to reach the top.

Comfortable Modern House Guideline 5

For Heat reduction on the partition, we should choose the material for laying the partition with the low heat accumulation value e.g. Q-con Light Weight Concrete.  You should have the external wall painted in the light tone or bright tone e.g. white, cream, pastel or you can choose the heat reflecting paint or installing the Light Weight Concrete with the insulation on the partition exposed to the sun.  It will protect the heat more efficiently.

How to reduce the heat on wall or partition
Selecting Q-Con Light Weight Concrete or Installing the Light Weight Concrete with Insulation. It will help protect the heat more efficiently

2. Ventilation

SCG Active Air Flow
Example of the Direction of Air Ventilation inside the house

There should be air ventilation inside the house in order to ventilate the heat and make the air inside the house flowing better and not humid.  Normally, The window will perform this function to ventilate the air inside and outside, however many residents need to close the window or live in the house with less windows which makes the air unable to flow ventilate smoothly.  As a result you can feel stuffy, warm and uncomfortable in the house.

You can install Active AIRflow™ System which is the innovative air and heat ventilation from the house and the spacious roof in order to mechanically ventilate the air and the heat from the house quickly. The house will have a good ventilation even though the house has been closed the whole day. 

The house will not be stuffy or humid.  Active AIRflow™ System will help reduce the accumulated bacteria and the room temperature will cool down faster therefore the electricity cost for the air conditioning unit will be saved  upto16-20%

3. Green Landscape

Comfortable House Guideline
Green Landscape surrounding the houses and the big trees create the fresh and shady ambience and give shade to the house.
 
Verticle Garden help your living more comfort
Vertical Garden suitable for limited space and area. Easy Care and you can select the varieties of plants according to your preference and need

The house should be surrounded by the Green Landscape.  The house will not only become lively but also reduce the heat in the surrounding areas. The house will be cooled.  In case you have limited space or area, you can increase the green area by vertical SCG Modular Green Hive which has been designed for easy installation and easy care which is suitable for the current city life.

Making the house cosy and comfortable does not depend on any factor. It consists of various factors which have been mentioned above.  It will help save the energy as well.
