Most rooftops have unsightly air conditioning units or water tanks, but architect firm WARchitect wanted this five-story apartment building in Bangkok’s Jatujak district to be a bit different. Simply put, they transformed the vacant area into a “borderless” home that uses the concrete surface as the foundation, which is located 49-feet above street level, thus making it nearly invisible from public roads.

Absolutely no space is wasted, thanks to a minimalist design with an interior clad with Balau wood planks and Asian hardwood for a cozy, yet stylish, feel, while floor-to-ceiling glazing lets you step outside seamlessly. The living space is divided into six rooms via a grid layout, all of which are organized around a central courtyard.

You’ll also find a spacious dining area, living room, bathroom, full kitchen and a bedroom, complete with stunning city views, thanks to a large glass sliding door. The architects were aiming to create a borderless box effect that is seemingly emerging out of nowhere in the sky, and it’s safe to say that they were successful in doing so.
