“Space and light and order. Those are the things that men need just as much as they need bread or a place to sleep.”
– Le Corbusier
Often when we travel, the places that stick with us aren’t the grand or overwrought. The spaces that fill our imagination are edited, humble, and modest. When we scooted up into the mountains of northern Thailand, filling up our tank with gas out of repurposed whiskey bottles at roadside stands, we found so many gems of simple, clean-lined, unpretentious architecture. These streamlined spaces gave us room to dream and became the blank canvases upon which the idea for Moveable Feast Retreats was born.
So here’s a few shots of The Art Farm just outside of Pai in northern Thailand. I can still feel the cool of laying on the concrete floors during the midday sun and the smell of the brick as the water from the outdoor shower trickled down.
