KTC Business Centre | A Showcase of Innovative Design in Bangkok’s Business Landscape

Located in Bangkok’s well-known United Business Centre II Building, the KTC Business Centre exemplifies the impact of innovative design. Conceptualized and brought to life by dwp | design worldwide partnership, this modern facility has become a hub for KTC partners and guests since its opening in October 2023. 


Design Philosophy: “THE ATMOSPHERE”

At the core of the KTC Business Centre’s design lies “THE ATMOSPHERE,” a concept that embodies the essence of a smart city. By integrating innovation with shared spaces, dwp has created an environment that aligns with KTC’s values of smart simplicity, courage, and meaningful interactions. The result is a space that serves the practical needs of its users while fostering a sense of community and progressive thinking.


Interior Highlights

The interior design of the KTC Business Centre is visually striking. The central bar area, which serves as the focal point of the space, showcases a combination of materials and design elements. “The use of Tropical Storm marble, copper ceilings, reclaimed wood, fluted glass, and custom chandeliers not only boosts aesthetic appeal but also underscores our commitment to innovative and sustainable design,” says Robert Troup, Managing Director, Thailand Studio at dwp.


Facility Layout

The ground floor of the United Business Centre II features a street-facing section known as the KTC Business Centre, and a separate area towards the back called KTC Touch, which offers an entrance from inside the building. KTC Touch provides routine banking services, ensuring that both business and regular banking needs are met seamlessly within the same building.


Functional Design for Business Needs

Beyond its aesthetic appeal, the KTC Business Centre is designed with functionality in mind. Meeting rooms are equipped with sound-absorbing materials to ensure a business-friendly atmosphere, allowing for productive discussions and collaboration. This attention to functional design is important for the Centre’s role in hosting various professional events, providing an environment that effectively supports the needs of modern businesses.


Overcoming Design Challenges

The process of integrating modern designs into the older structure of the United Business Centre II presented challenges. From managing curved corners to navigating complex MEP systems during renovation, the dwp team faced several obstacles. “The renovation process presented numerous challenges, but the results have been immensely rewarding,” notes Troup.


A Space for Innovation and Sustainability

With its grand opening, the KTC Business Centre is set to influence business standards in Bangkok. As an example of dwp’s expertise in innovative design and sustainability, this sophisticated and sustainable space is designed to inspire its visitors and users. It represents a modern business environment that prioritizes both form and function. The KTC Business Centre is a shining example of what can be achieved when design excellence meets forward-thinking business practices.
