Chiangmai Life Construction creates homes using rammed earth, bamboo and recycled wood

Chiangmai Life Construction in northern Thailand designs and builds modern, organic architecture using mainly earth and bamboo, but also concrete for foundations, recycled hardwood, and whatever else works. The company’s philosophy is to bring these natural materials into the 21st century, so up-to-date engineering knowledge is applied to nature’s materials and organic designs. CLC strives for a balance of beauty, quality and affordability. Trika Villa is an example of these values, with a roof made of bamboo and walls made of adobe bricks. The floor is partly rammed earth , partly a clay-concrete mix, to create a tropical sanctuary with modern luxury that surrounds inhabitants with nature inside and outside.
