Oliver Twist? Not by a long shot.

What happens when you task an up-and-coming Thai architecture firm with the design of a modern orphanage? You get a design void of preconception and tradition. More specifically, you get "Soe Ker Tie" or "Butterfly Houses".

Designed by TYIN Tegnestue and constructed from local materials and by local craftsmen, the orphanage aims to provide a private space for children to play, learn and interact. One of the major deviations from tradition is that each Butterfly House houses a small (3-4) number of children, as opposed to a single central dormitory.
