A renovation project for a hotel on a corner lot in Bangkok. With one side facing a bustling boulevard and the other side facing a quiet little street, the project focused on the hidden grandeur in the existing volume and its potential as a grand hotel.

Two contrasting areas are loosely connected in this large volume that appeared after the existing partitions were removed. On the boulevard side, behind the cavernous façade is a lounge in a modest height with slightly bright shadows. Gently connected by steps, within the same volume, a light-filled, open cafeteria was created, embracing the light and life of the little street beside.
