Integrating Design Into Nature

An acronym for Integrating Design Into Nature, IDIN Architects was founded in 2004. We perceive ‘nature’ in two ways. Firstly, nature can be defined as the ecology around us. Secondly, it can also refer to different mannerisms and personalities. The design philosophy and concentration of IDIN is to merge this sense of surrounding, the ‘natures’, to the architectural aesthetic. This merge is done through a process of analyzing and prioritizing the different needs and requirements of each project.

In addition to being an acronym, the Thai word “idin” is used to describe the natural phenomenon when soil releases a beautiful scent after rainfall. This symbolizes Thailand’s tropical climate, something all IDIN designs aim to respond to. Our emphasis is therefore placed not only on aesthetics, but also on practically, in order to suit this temperate environment.

IDIN Architects’ founding principal, Jeravej Hongsakul, received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang in 1998. Following graduation, he worked for Plan Associates for three years. Prior to starting his own practice, Hongsakul received a number of awards including the First Prize from 11th ASA Design Competition in 1999, the Second Prize from House with Nature Design Competition in 2001, and the Nippon Paint Young architect award in 2003.
