PIPATANASIN BUILDING

Following the 1990s economic crisis in Southeast Asia, this building was left abandoned as an unfinished, four-story structure. With the regional economic recovery, a 21-story office building was proposed. The building form was previously expressed by three articulated stacks, from the base to the shaft and pinnacle. In order to change the appearance of the building, a more monolithic form was pursued. The optimal maximum proportions were restricted by the building codes that required the height of the building to be twice the length from the setback line from the property line plus the width of the road in front. The faade is clad with tinted glass instead of colored reflective glass. The continuity of the monolithic form was achieved with a unitized system at equal height to the floor-to-floor dimension. The vertical mullions were laid in an English bond pattern, which accentuated the three-point definition line. Curved walls, gradually increasing in height, define the unique form of the building.
