Rebalance and Reconnect: Embracing Nature's Serenity and Sustainability
Be Well Spa, Movenpick BDMS Wellness Resort
The design concept for BDMS Wellness Resort Bangkok is “The journey to Rebalance + Reconnect”. The design takes inspiration from Park Nai Lert, a city forest well-known for its large trees, embodying a peaceful atmosphere surrounded by nature. Traditional Thai healing philosophy that sees the four elements as the foundation of life is also referenced to make the space more suitable for the healing and treatment process.
Materials are selected with a focus on durability and aesthetics. A variety of materials are used, including a natural colour veneer to create a warm and comfortable environment, contrasting with textured wall coverings for a more luxurious feel.
The design adheres to the Sustainable Design concept by utilising LEED-certified, non-VOCs, and durable materials for long-term usage. The design also takes into consideration the natural environment of the location, full of old trees, and works closely with an engineer and landscape team to maximise the use of natural resources.
