GreenDwell was established in 2009, providing design and consultancy services for buildings with sustainable design intents.
‘Sustainable design should not be considered as design concepts but rather a necessity.’

GreenDwell / Yoo-Yen-Pen-Sook
Yoo-Yen-Pen-Sook is a Thai old saying, which links a thermally comfortable living (physical comfort) with a sense of comfort in terms of peace of mind. We think this term is similar to the term ‘dwell’, which does not only mean ‘to live’ but it also shows psychological sense of comfort or ‘well-being’.
Apart from energy and environmental consideration, we believe how users experience space through time defines architecture which is a delight to the five senses.
Our green research-integrated design (g.r.i.d) process helps us to hypothesize the various senses that users may experience after the building is constructed. Through the use of computer simulation tools – our ‘sensual experience tester’ – we are able to check the sensual performance since early phase, such as daylight, shading, or ventilation, to ensure that, once built, users will dwell in the space delightfully.
‘Architecture is considered a delightful blend of art and science. One cannot accept it aesthetically without acknowledging its environmental impact.’
