The Thai Onion architects studio is responsible for the rehabilitation and transformation of this space in the spectacular restaurant and hotel Sala Rattanakosin in Thailand with a look industrial, and views of heart attack.
Sala Rattanakosin is a luxurious complex of 1,500 square meters with 17 rooms, restaurants, outdoor terrace, indoor bar and a rooftop bar. With a strong industrial style that contrasts with the architecture of the pagodas, which surround the entire building.
But for panoramic views from the rooftop bar, look where you look is beautiful, at one end we have the views of the Chao Phraya River and in the opposite direction we have the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, which is home to more than 90 pagodas and a central sanctuary.
As for the building, the architects they have kept part of the original architectural elements as they were and have integrated them into the interior design project, such as brick walls, railings and cement walls with all its defects, a topic that here at Decoesfera we have talked about Add texture and defects to your walls.
He interior design project makes no mention of its surroundings, a luxurious chic industrial decoration separates you from the country where you are, but the architects, very aptly, integrated the essence, the passage and the architecture of the country through the views.
Building It is designed for all spaces to enjoy the landscape, look where you look you see the beautiful pagodas, either reflected through crystals such as one of the restaurants or through the windows and terraces of the rooms and public spaces.
It seems much more interesting the building rehabilitation project itself, leaving the brick walls, and other spoiled elements uncovered that the interior design project, although beautiful I see it more standard, cold and impersonal.
However the qualities of the materials are so good that despite the lack of style in the decoration is compensated by the warm wooden floors, the dim light and the textures of the walls.
