Creating better lobbies and the role of sustainable design.
by Michael Hegarty CEO and Scott Whittaker Group Creative Director dwp | design worldwide partnership
People desire to feel good again, taking a holiday or short break is a core element in feeling good and the moment of arrival at a hotel is the threshold of a break or holiday. We see many of our hospitality clients exploring sustainability opportunities and maximising health and wellness strategies, and this can be done without sacrificing warmth. Therefore we are focused on improving the arrival experience at the hotel lobby.”
Luxury Living at Sathorn 125, Bangkok
The dwp residential design team is proud to finally showcase this 36 storey twin tower project, located in the Sathorn district of Bangkok. Sathorn has long become one of the city’s most well known and exclusive areas, including the city’s CBD, restaurants, bars, shopping malls and embassies as well as many residential towers and complexes. PMT Property added yet another signature condominium to the district by developing 125 Sathorn Condo. 125 Sathorn was conceived to combine nature with urbanity, where the two main residential buildings have been designed to ensure uncrowded living spaces, optimum airflow and natural lighting while remaining inclusive and thoughtful to its natural surroundings.
