The notion of homes being our sanctuaries and the ultimate representations of ourselves is more evident now than before—they reflect who we are and house the things we cherish. Whether you’re living in a bungalow or an apartment, you’ve probably put more thought and effort into improving your interior spaces this year, as all of us are spending more time indoors. But how do we make room for social interaction, while ensuring we still have an intimate enclave to retreat to? These questions provide much food for thought for homeowners and designers alike. The abodes in this issue successfully articulate what home means to each family.

Interior designer LH Chan found his calling at an early age. He and his siblings had many fond childhood memories exploring the houses their father had built over the years for various clients; these experiences inspired him to learn more about home design. Even after almost three decades in the industry, the principal designer of TDC & Associates sees every project as a valuable opportunity to create a unique and beautiful home for each client. “Staying true to our passion has become a lifelong pursuit not only for the firm, but also my personal motivation,” shares Chan. Founded in 1993, the local practice has crafted numerous abodes that elegantly combine timeless designs with well-conceived details. “The spaces we design have a multi-layered appeal that feels both lived in and well-curated,” says Chan.…

Situated in the lush Nai Lert Park, Aman Nai Lert Bangkok represents a homecoming of sorts for the Aman brand, which began its story when it opened Amanpuri in Phuket over 30 years ago and continues to inspire the way resorts are fashioned today. Most importantly, the property represents what all of us crave—a true connection to nature and a place brimming with soul. “We have preserved the natural surroundings of Nai Lert Park, including a century-old Sompong tree; the tree now remains a representation of my great-grandfather’s legacy to protect and nurture this land,” remarks Naphaporn “Lek” Bodiratnangkura, CEO of Nai Lert Park Development, Nai Lert Group (pictured top right). Set to launch in 2023, the development comprises 52 hotel suites and no more than 50 residences across 18 floors. It…
