“When prime modernity inherit truly natural heritage” is the essence of landscape design principal. Thanks to the vision of the owner and the design teams, from the commencement of the project up to the completion. We have had shared one commitment developing property to enhance the quality of the modern life, especially in Bangkok’s CBD. Regarded as the most dynamic, fast growing and populous city with the advent of the air pollution crisis. Therefore, we strongly proposed the landscape design concept involving the harmony of human and nature on the site context at Wireless road, one of the city’s first major boulevards and quickly became the city’s Embassy Row at the heart of capital. This road also only a short walk to Lumphini Park, the biggest central park of Bangkok.
Creating the unique characteristic of the landscape with the harmony with nature. The preservation of the existing Bodhi trees located on site is one of the mission to inherit the natural heritage to the residents, to protect a natural habitat for the living creatures and to sustain the green area to our planet. All Bodhi trees are well integrated as part of the new garden composing the variety of plants, a large open lawn and green area creating the enclosed greenery within the city area as “the urban oasis”
“The urban oasis” is all nestled by the picturesque landscape achieving many design goals; as an aesthetic memorable ambience of the legendary Wireless road, as a main garden for the residents to interact with nature and as an urban ecology landscape for the living creatures as well as a lung for a city.
Comprehensively defined at the conceptual design stage, the lush landscape setting would not create the great impact if there was no high level of integration with other areas. Therefore, not only the ground landscape, but also the other on-structure landscape floors have been well integrated with one goal.
As a picturesque backdrop for the semi-outdoor lobby, the various layers of plantation, from over 15 m. high mature trees to the several heights of small trees and shrub with large open lawn, are well composed and designed to achieving concept.
“The cascade garden” located on 10th Floor therefore is strategically designed as an urban sanctuary for the residents to breath the fresh air, wander around the greenery and motivate their sensory in a place nestled by the richness of greenery. The hierarchy of space formed by the hardscape compositions, the arrangement of plant and the level changes meticulously creates a sequence of experience, the visual harmony as well as the proper functionality in the garden.
Elaborately integrated with the fully evergreen garden of well-selected plantations in different textures, forms and heights, the feature pavilion and its reflective pond stand dominantly as a welcoming landscape setting. This one of a kind garden brings in the absolute serenity and the prime privacy for the residents at Life One Wireless located on the legendary Wireless road in the hustle and bustle Bangkok’s CBD.
The water feature cools down the outdoor space as well as creates the sense of auditory in the enclosed environment. The softscape design is intentionally designed to enhance the human scale by using the cluster of mature evergreen trees in various heights, the visual quality and privacy by using the small-medium trees and the soft touch by using the variety of shrub and groundcover.
“The sky park” , the rooftop landscape design is strategically designed to integrate two floors as one garden connecting by the terrace garden. Therefore, the functional spaces are connected with the exceptional experiences.
The upper terrace features the dazzling pool and its vanishing edge with the stunning panoramic Bangkok’s CBD view.
The lower terrace serves as the various garden settings from sky-view bridge, chill-out on the sky corner, garden seat to the cozy amphitheater surrounded by shades of tree.
This multi-leveled landscape stands still dominantly on the top of this iconic building among the vibe of Bangkok’s skyline.
