The Bear House is located in Cha-Am Beach, a famous seaside resort town in central Thailand, three hours drive from Bangkok.
Own by sibling and huge [email protected] collector Sittawat Sahawat and Nipapat Sahawat, the modern house was designed by Onion in 2012. It features whimsical murals and a prominent display of the owner’s [email protected] toy collection.
Bear House is bright and humorous. Its living room and swimming pool are the front part of the house. The whole space is colored by young Thai graffiti artists well known as MMFK and P7. In the living room, behind the oversize sofa, MMFK paints a one-eye monster, dressed up as a sailor, whereas P7 paints a blue bear head with striped eyebrows. Next to the swimming pool, on the wall of eleven metres long, MMFK illustrates the cartoon representation of a bear devouring his iconic one-eye monster. P7 drew a black bear head with the word ‘surf’ on its forehead. These illustrations are customised only for Bear House.
