The Commons

Bangkok, Thailand

The Commons, a small retail development in the city center, is an attempt to create a new active outdoor space where people can comfortably enjoy it at any time of the year. A landscape of steps and ramps integrated with platforms and seating is well shaded by the structure above protecting the entire space from the sun and the rain. The space vertically and horizontally flows in and out the entire building and allows for natural ventilation throughout. It becomes an active vertical urban living area.
