兰花农场也被称为“Suan Bua Maesa”，在大约30年前作为一个家族企业有了一个不起眼的开端。它还有另一个用途，可以让游客看到兰花的自然美。一段时间后，业务开始停滞，盈利能力受到影响。随着时间的推移，旅游业减少，对兰花和竞争的兴趣总体上缺乏。考虑到兰花的主人们所处的艰难而富有挑战性的地位，他们考虑了重新开始生意的前景和对兰花的兴趣。
Orchid Farm also known as "Suan Bua Maesa", had a humble beginning some 30 years ago as a family run business. It also served another purpose allowing the natural beauty of the orchids to be seen by tourists. After some time, the business began to stagnate and profitability was affected. Over time, tourism reduced with an overall lack of interest in orchids and also from competition. Given the difficult and challenging position the owners found themselves in, they looked at the prospect of regenerating their business and interest in the Orchid’s.
The architect began on this path to recovery by studying the characteristics of the nursery from its past and to reconnect with the beginning of this business. It was found that the old nursery structure used a galvanized steel structure and it was arranged in a GRID system with a distance of 3 meters by 3 meters.
The top was also made of a galvanized steel structure and covered with black shading net to filter the light. This also had a side effect of adding water to the area.From the study of the characteristics of light management from past patterns, it was discovered that there was a light filter on the initial roof plan.Therefore we began to investigate whether we can create a model light filter by other means yet still maintaining a reasonable economical construction system due to the project's needs.
Bamboo is considered a local indigeous material that is easy to find and therefore we used it as a tool to solve the shaded conditions on this project. Due to being lightweight it also reduced the weight on the structure. In the original nursery, there are a variety of patterns used to create translucent or opaque feel, bamboo is also very environmentally friendly for orchids. We were very keen to make the color of orchids stand out and create harmony with the environment.
