Bureerat Boutique Hotel

Bureerat Boutique Hotel in the old city center district of Lampang is an adaptive reuse of the Fong Lee row house, a more than century-old building of wood and masonry structure with elaborate wood elements. The hotel lobby is on the ground floor of the east block of the row house, which is further from the intersection. The guestrooms are from the ground floor to the third floor. A row of dense shrubs is planted in front of the building to provide privacy to the ground floor guestrooms. Additional bay windows are designed for the building's attic to make it guestrooms. A dining area is added to the roof deck of the building so that people can see a view of the surrounding area from that level.


All existing wood elements are maintained. The extensions' facades are made of a simple form of wood and glass, contrasting in detail with the existing building's elaborate wood elements but harmonizing with its materials and colors.


Its exterior materials are wood, terrazzo, and clear float glass with wood frames; the common areas' interior materials are terrazzo, painted plaster, woods of many color shades, and local-made earth-tone unglazed terra-cotta tiles; the guestrooms' interior materials are painted plaster, woods of many color shades, and local-made earth-tone unglazed terra-cotta tiles.
