Gaysorn Village – Rejuvenating Your Work-Life Balance
Many people have no choice but to spend most of their time working in the office or co-working spaces, making the urge to get out and about irresistible. As a person always on the lookout for new places, Gaysorn Village definitely catches my attention following its extravagant renovations.
Touted as the first “Lifestyle Urban Village” in Thailand, Gaysorn Village echoes dynamism of urban living and working life at the heart of Ratchaprasong. The Gaysorn Property Group espouses its contextual “Work-Live-Play-Grow” concept by combining its three properties and iconic destinations: Gaysorn Shopping Centre, Gaysorn Tower, and Amarin Plaza.
Gaysorn Village – designed by JERD Partnership, a visionary architecture and urban planning firm – is a mixed-use property that aims to enhance overall lifestyle experiences with its architectural magnificence for every visitor, shopper, and office worker in Bangkok. Incorporating “Chang Sip Moo” (ten classic crafts) into its timeless design, this project creates a visual narrative of harmonious connections between arts and culture and diverse lifestyles.
The highlight of this urban district is the recently launched Gaysorn Tower, the most innovative office building designed by Landscape Architects 49. The architects weave together the various elements – efficient workplaces, sustainable amenities and an inspirational environment – to create stunning exterior and interior designs. Refined with simplistic and elegant lines, the tower balances geometric structures with curved facades with the use of the finest materials such as glass, iron, and wood, all aligned with color combinations of champagne, light brown, and bronze. The result is an air of subtle luxury.
In charge of the property’s seamless interior design, CL3, a Hong Kong-based innovative architecture and interior design firm, demonstrates its mastery of superb craftsmanship by using grand, high-quality materials such as marble, iron and glass plus an assortment of ornamental plants, all selected to enhance the overall atmosphere. Upon entering the lobby, visitors are warmly welcomed to the various natural shades of brown from the vertically placed wooden laths that match the brown marbled floor against a combination of greens from the refreshing plants.
Connecting the luxurious shopping center with the lively office tower on the second floor, Gaysorn Cocoon, an architectural masterpiece inspired by a silkworm cocoon, symbolizes creativity and birth awaiting guests to witness a metamorphosis of nouveau urban lives. Modeled after a cocoon using layers of oak wood and a variety of plants, this location makes interactions come to life through the incremental change in natural light that filters in through the openings.
Designated as the landmark of the building, Gaysorn Urban Resort, spanning two levels (19 and 20), takes its cue from a relaxing tropical resort that gives the place a strong holiday vibe. What takes this venue to the next level is the Gaysorn Crystal Box, a multi-functional venue under the concept of “collaboration” ideal for business and private events.
Like the jewel in the tower’s crown, the Crystal Box features glass walls overlooking the city skyline and providing a seamless 270-degree panoramic view of the City of Angels. The urban outdoor Sky Terrace adds a cherry on top of the whole setting. The Crystal Box – quite a spectacle in its own right with concrete softened by patches of refreshing greenery – allows you to think outside the box and restore your energy with nature.
Embracing the power of nature, Landscape Architects 49 endows the property with the greenery aesthetics – from perennial trees to shrubs – that makes the landscape’s visual atmosphere powerful. Celebrators of city life have a lot to enjoy from both indoor space and the outdoor garden, especially the Reflective Pool, a veritable urban oasis, where it’s tempting to re-energize whether you are drained by the daily grind.
The breathtaking architectural aesthetics aside, the Gaysorn Tower excels in other areas too. The project embraces an innovative, environmentally friendly, and sustainable design that has not only attained LEED Gold certification, but allows you to breathe cooler, fresher air and improve your work-life balance, as well.
