ONE BANGKOK
Location: Bangkok, Thailand
Anticipated Completion: 2025

SOM, working with a team of local and international architecture and landscape architecture firms, is leading the design of a 16-hectare master plan in the heart of Bangkok. Adjacent to the city’s popular Lumphini Park, One Bangkok is the largest private-sector development in Thailand to date, introducing an extensive collection of residential, hotel, retail, office, and public spaces to the city center.

SOM’s vision establishes a vertical village designed to foster community and promote well-being in a dense urban environment. Welcoming streetscapes will create a sense of place, encouraging visitors to return, while a wide range of outdoor spaces, including eight hectares of public plazas and landscaped greenspace, will form a new center of social life in the city.

One Bangkok is the first project in Thailand to target LEED® Platinum certification for Neighborhood Development. Its architecture and landscape respond to the tropical climate and ecology, utilizing sustainable design approaches and technologies to significantly reduce energy expenditure and water use. The master plan centralizes energy and water-management systems to optimize efficiency and anticipate future growth. The use of greenspace and permeable materials will retain rainwater onsite to reduce runoff and facilitate absorption that will help replenish groundwater resources.

SOM is working with the One Bangkok project team to design a selection of towers in the district, each with its own unique character and form. One tower features a cascade of green terraces; another combines two volumes with a lattice of sky gardens and atria. The design of the towers reduces the ecological footprint of the district through careful site placement and positioning, and a suite of sustainable engineering systems tailored to the local climate.
