‘The Line Sathorn’ is highrise condominium in famous Bangkok’s CBD in Sathorn which is considered as high value land area. Architects see this site as a design challenge to introduce memorable building by complimenting the richness of its surrounding. The functional zonings are positioned in logical way of highrise residential typology. Common areas are on top of the building to take an opportunities of Bangkok skyline view. Façade design encourages building identity using folding form shape in grey tone materials reflecting luxurious simplicity design.
For the site context, architect s compliment open-space surrounding, Bangkok Christian College school, by arranging all units toward that direction along single-load corridor. Avoiding high density is concerned by limiting only 9-units per typical residential floor as maximum.
