BAAN KANG WAT - The Artist Village

BAAN KANG WAT

   Tucked away in the university neighbourhood, 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 and craft studios, art galleries, a homemade gelato and bakery, coffee shops restaurants and beautiful art deco shops. Check out the community village’s schedule and discover many interesting workshops such as ceramics, jewellery, water color drawing, woodcut printing, notebook making, indigo etc...  Along with these workshops, there are also a regular art & crafts exhibitions.

   Obviously, Baan 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.
