The chequered facade of this Bangkok showroom by architects Sansiri and landscape architects Shma is half glass and half living plants. While Bangkok living ground has been rising up, little does the green area rise. This green envelope is designed for condominium sale office gallery, a place where a new urban living definition is displayed.
The module green wall crate is made from stainless steel for easy construction. Hanging plant pots and drip irrigation are installed behind the felt. This system is inexpensive and convenient to construct. Considering the locality, a local plant, Tokyo Dwarf which is normally found on ground is selected. It can stand very well under Bangkok’s extreme environment. The texture of plant also softens the rigidity and stand out among Bangkok complex structure. While thin member and angled one, once lightened, express another dimension of the surface, contrasting to the flat surface of high-rise.
