The Residence at Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok
A concept inspired by the mercurial qualities of the nearby Chao Praya River. Reflections in mirror and lighting, stone and shell materials, and organic textiles and forms create an intriguing sensory and sensual environment.
The curation of artworks throughout the interiors reflects the Studio’s appreciation for beauty within nature. The natural stone sculpture that has been uniquely carved sits prominently in the arrival and gives a metaphorical nod towards the organic make-up of the Chao Praya river bed and the many layers that this city has been built upon.
Adorning the walls of the reception is enamel artwork that has been scraped with precision to reveal golden threads alluding to fisherman’s netting, whilst in the exclusive lounge giant metallic pebbles rest on the floor, once again drawing the natural elements of the river.
Upon arrival, the main focus is the urbane linear reception desks with fanning metal grilles at the front as a nod towards the ripples of water encapsulated by Amazonia marble. They sit proudly in front of custom embroidered artwork of the Chao Praya River and the surrounding neighbourhoods to give a calming sense of space and place in a city so rich in energy.
Each apartment has been designed based on a scheme whose beauty, luxury and service place it in a class of its own, creating a sense of privacy, personality and tranquillity which reliably transitions through all areas, public and private.
Comprising of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom apartments and a duplex penthouse at levels 51 and 52; the units as a whole display luxury finish and bespoke detailing adding a new dimension to conventional Thai materials and craftsmanship. The choice of finishes, the spatial planning and lifestyle they allude to are expressed throughout the apartments to create a unity between the resident and their home.
