Vanissa Building, Chidlom

The main facade system is a unique fully unitised curtain wall with an L-shaped vertical section allowing the glazing to slope outwards at each floor whilst maintaining fully unitised joints, connections and seals. At upper levels the L-shaped panels start to slope back on the front elevations creating further unique configurations.

The custom designed facade system was developed by Facade Associates especially for the project and is based on a hybrid system of European female-female mullions and more common Asia / American male-female mullion systems. The design was taken forward by facade contractor AAGi and succesfully implemented.

The 6-storey linkbridge between the buildings is also clad in the L-shaped unitised system.

A secondary flat unitised system with an external trellis and integrated lighting interfaces with the L-shape system along swooping curves that wrap the building, creating a large number of challenging interfaces.

External trellises cross the planar zones of the facade and contain LED strip lighting.

The various facade systems all interface at facetted divisions, building corners and stepped edges creating a huge number of individual details, and with the additional variable of different floor heights and lean angles make this one of the most complex unitised facade installations in Bangkok.
