BAAN KANG WAT-CHIANG MAI - The Artists’s Village

BAAN KANG WAT-CHIANG MAI

Tucked away in the university neighborhood, opposite Wat Ram Poeng temple, lies the serene community of Baan Kang Wat. This small community of independent shops and businesses is made up of around ten unique houses, centred around an outdoor communal area and amphitheatre. The teak houses are built in traditional-meets-modern, with brushed concrete walls, hanging art and timeless wooden furniture.
Nattawut Ruckprasit “Big”, is the man behind this idea. He runs a ceramic shop in Baan Kang Wat called “Bookoo Studio” and says that his aim behind this project was to create a unique and close knit community, where all the businesses work together and participate in joint events to create a truly community neighbourhood.
All the creative businesses found at the village focus on local, handmade sustainable and organic products. Baan Kang Wat houses a library, art galleries, studios and shops. Check out the community village’s schedule and discovermany interesting workshops such as ceramics, jewelry, water color drawing, Raku Japanese pottery technique, woodcut printing etc... Along with these shops, there are also a few cafes and two restaurants offering Thai cuisine and burgers. Every Sunday morning, Baan Kang Wat houses a farmers’ market. From 7 am. to 11 am., you can buy organic vegetables, home made products, cheeses and delicious coffee.
Obviously, Ban Kang Wat is the place in Chiang Mai to enjoy a peaceful moment. Behind this project lies the idea to combine modern life in the city with rural country lifestyle. It is not just a place to shop and eat, but an unforgettable village in which to rest, relax and enjoy slow life.
