Centrally located in Bangkok, the hotel caters to business travelers and tourists on a budget. Every aspect of the building design and its services were thus “optimized” to suit this client group. This involves everything from devising the most efficient circulation routes and a compact building footprint to reducing unnecessary leisure services and providing in their stead such features as DIY laundry room and vending machines.

Following the same principles, the façade design generates visual interest through emphasizing

the simple form of the building via repetition. This includes applying a checkerboard pattern and carving out voids on the building corners to create the iconic appearance of a series of stacked boxes. To help with energy conservation, acoustic performance and construction cost management, the façade design further adhered to a 60 to 40 solid void ratio. Nevertheless, the architects ensured that the windows are full-height and in this way a pleasant interior ambience was achieved even with limited resources.
