The Collection 16 is a mixed development property comprising of two buildings; the seven-storey hotel building to the front, and the 150 meters high rise residential building to the back. A retail passage passes through the hotel on the ground floor and connects pedestrians to the residential tower behind.
The project is adjacent to the Ratchadapisek road with a prime view overlooking the large lake of Benchakiti Park. Fully glaze façade is selected for the project to allow full height windows, thus maximise views out to the lake and city. To maximise saleable area, the building envelope is pushed out to the fullest extent allowed by the site. Which meant that there is no depth for brise soleil. So instead depth and solar shading is achieved through varying the room depth which is dictated by the desire to accommodate multiple preferences, incorporating choices of balcony and full lengths unit.
At the top of the tower is the sky lobby designed as stacked terraces of facilities, so that all area takes in the vista of Bangkok skyline and its reflection on the Benchakiti lake.
