An Extension of Urban Royalty

Siam Kempinski Hotel and Residences
Bangkok, Thailand

This elegant design embraces a distinctly modern Thai style that establishes an urban resort destination within downtown Bangkok.

The site is located between the Sra Pathum Palace of the Thai princess and the Wat Pathum Wanaram temple. To respect the views into and out of the royal compound, the design complies with strict height limitations, massing requirements and restricted view corridors.

The Siam Kempinski includes three components: a majestic entry court leading to hotel public spaces, a garden wing ranging from five to eight stories, and a 19-story tower that houses hotel rooms and apartments. These three elements follow the outer edge of the site, creating an expansive interior oasis with a swimming pool that wraps around the perimeter.

The design translates traditional forms and details into a contemporary language. Inspired by Thai residential architecture, the massing of the tower is executed in a timeless contemporary expression, including use of louvered shutters as shading devices. The scale and rhythm of the window wall, with its repetitive screen openings, reference traditional building methods. Wood and stone details echo historic Thai architectural themes.

The luxury hotel offers 300 guestrooms, including suites and lavish duplex garden cabanas, three restaurants, a conference center and spa. One hundred exclusive apartments also are available within the complex.
