This research studies the causes and factors for the renovation of the detached house under the case study of The Eua Athorn House Project, Phanom Sarakham District, Chachoengsao. The research aims to study the pattern, space for utility, reasons, and factors for the extension.
The researcher studied and classified the renovation patterns of 336 detached houses and found that a total of 221 houses had built extensions. Field studies were done to collect photographs, observations, and inquiries. The data were divided into usable areas, architectural elements, patterns, reasons, and factors for the extension. The comparative analysis was done to conclude the result of the studies.
According to the field study, it was found that there were a total of 8 extension patterns divided according to the house area. The most common pattern is the roof extension in front of the 1st-floor house from 10 causes and factors of the extension. While the number one reason for extension results from the increasing space from limited usable space, the least is to demonstrate the increase in wealth.
