Modern tropical - a greater affinity with the outdoors

Adjusting its housing designs to reflect demand for a “younger” lifestyle, Preuksa Real Estate has revealed plans for a detached house project under the brand Preuksa Village Delight designed along “modern tropical” lines.

Director and chief operating officer Prasert Taedullayasatit said the modern tropical style featured a greater affinity with the outdoors, allowing homeowners to feel at one with nature.

“We redesigned the houses by providing more open windows, larger areas of glass, and sliding glass doors to create a feeling of living close to the outdoors,” he said.

The houses also have a modern appearance, with more open space to serve homeowners’ needs for different activities.

Prasert said the new design was being launched at Preuksa Village Delight at Rangsit-Watcharapong.


The project has four models under the modern tropical theme, with prices starting at Bt2.39 million. They include the Veranda type, which has 125 square metres of floor space and occupies 44 square wah (176 square metres) of land; the Patio type, which has 122 square metres of floor space on 44 square wah of land; the Courtyard type, which has 140 square metres of floor space on 50 square wah of land; and the Terrace type, with 150 square metres of floor space and 50 square wah of land.

The Veranda type has a living room, dining room, bathroom and kitchen area on the ground floor and three bedrooms and one bathroom on the upper floor. It also has parking space for two cars.

The Patio type has long sliding glass doors linking the indoors and outdoors, reminiscent of a resort. This type has parking space for only one car.

The Courtyard type is designed with a high ceiling in the living room, offering home-owners a weekend retreat and place for relaxation.

The Terrace type has a larger indoor foyer and a large upper-floor balcony, to serve home-owners with bigger families, who need more space for family activities.

“We designed different types because we have learnt that customers have different lifestyles and need different kinds of residences accordingly. Our new designs will provide for niche demand in a mass market,” he said.
