Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) and Thomas Juul-Hansen have designed an upscale apartment tower in Bangkok costing that will feature 2,500m² of entertainment and health amenities for its residents.
SCOPE Langsuan, which is scheduled for completion in early 2023, will cover an area of 42,000m² and rise 34 storeys.
The tower’s design comprises three stepped, vertical elements and draws on “the geometry and rhythm of traditional Thai architecture” to create a sculptural façade and a balance between the classical and the modern.
“Our design for SCOPE Langsuan reflects a Thai attitude of generosity and hospitality in both its materiality and its direct relationship to the surrounding landscape,” – Trent Tesch, design principal, KPF.
“The building’s façade, seemingly organic in its nature, features faceted picture windows with optimal city views, while large private balconies, a luxurious outdoor pool deck, and shared rooftop greenspace offer residents indoor-outdoor living and wellness amenities in Bangkok’s city centre.”
The tower’s 158 residences will have private elevators, balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows. They will range from 83m² one-bedroom apartments up to penthouses ranging from 419-443m².
Among the $42m of amenities to which residents will have access include Italian marble hot- and cold-water springs, rain rooms, Swedish style sauna and steam rooms, private massage rooms and a 30x7m ozone swimming pool with temperature control.
A fitness centre, kitted in TechnoGym equipment, a weight training area and an adaptable studio room. For entertainment, there will be a 25-seat private cinema with a $350,000 audio-visual system, a sky lounge and roof garden with views of the city and a barbecue terrace with a private kitchen and dining area.
Other facilities on-site will include a conference room for business meetings, a fitting and grooming atelier, a kids’ recreation club and a private storage area.
