Society Interiors - - GREEN NEWS -

In Bangkok, Stu/D/O Ar­chi­tects has de­signed a new work­place for a lead­ing agri­cul­tural trad­ing com­pany. They used the idea of the rice ter­race to con­cep­tu­al­ize the new build­ing that is the em­bod­i­ment OF THE COM­PANY’S PHI­LOS­O­PHY AND BUSI­NESS OPER­A­TION. DUE TO VAR­I­OUS site re­stric­tions, it be­came nec­es­sary to make cer­tain changes TO THE DE­SIGNS AND AR­CHI­TEC­TURE IN OR­DER TO FUL­fiLL THE FUNC­TIONAL RE­QUIRE­MENTS OF THE COM­PANY. THIS WAS RE­SOLVED BY SHIFT­ING THE MASS OF EACH flOOR TO SLIGHTLY DIF­FER­ENT FROM EACH OTHER, CRE­AT­ING A SERIES OF OVER­LAP­PING CANTILEVERS AND TER­RACES. THE SIM­PLIC­ITY OF THE STACKED TER­RACE HAS BE­COME A SO­PHIS­TI­CATED SO­LU­TION AL­LOW­ING THE LO­CAL flORA and fauna of the out­door land­scape to per­me­ate into mul­ti­ple ar­eas and func­tions of the ar­chi­tec­ture.
