The Residences at Sindhorn Kempinski

The facade of this luxury residence overlooking Lumpini Park consists of floor to floor C-shaped precast fins that curve gently up the building and flare out at the base. On the west side they extend out to contain lanterns at the edge of the rooftop pool which cantilevers out on the south over the park.

Composed of jewel-box lofts, apartments with grand terraces, and duplexes, the residential complex has a unique facade configuration.

Kimpton Maa-Lai Hotel

The hotel facade consists of orthogonal patterns of different width and depth created by assemblies of various different shapes of precast concrete column, wall and beam panels, all joining and sealing together to form a maze-like grid over the entire facade.

Central Plaza Rayong

The striking facade concept by Architect Synthesis Design showed a pair of interfering waveforms that change shape and level as they wrap the building. The forms spread out over the large flat walls and lift and twist up over the main entrance and then swoop down under signboards to form a glazed walkway canopy leading to the main entry before rising again to wrap the corner.

Singha Complex

The complex consists of a central tower with retail podium and mechanical / car park ramp blocks on either side all linked together by a common architectural language of smooth continuous horizontal banding but differentiated by vertical and horizontal fin expressions.
