Official description

A Khum is a traditional house of northern Thai Royalty. Chao Burirat, refers to one of the highest levels of government offices in the Chiang Mai political system during the period from 1774-1932. The house architecture was created by combining traditional and colonial styles. A model of the first western influence to come to Chiang Mai, it shows a perfect blend of local and western style. The first floor has thick brick walls with a round arch arcade on the north facade. The second floor and roof structure, however, were built of teak in the Thai style. This unique architecture was influenced by British merchants engaged in the teak trade. At present, it is the office of the Lanna Architecture Centre, Architecture Faculty, Chiang Mai University.
