Lightmos Thonglor in Bangkok by Architectkidd
This unique inspiration building was designed by Architectkidd, they presented the Lightmos Thonglor from Bangkok, Thailand. These buildings usually begin as concrete constructions, and that looks like an “accidental” façade idea which resulted the circular holes seen here on the exterior surface of the Lightmos Thonglor. These design could reflect on the sometimes improvisational nature of construction in Bangkok.
The circular holes seen was an outcome of these design which formed with exactly focus on the exterior façade and experiment with building materials and techniques. It just to follow certain construction pratices but at the same time, it tried to undermined some of these aspects. Using holes as the cutting geometry was a kind of an optimization technique because a circle is an efficient way to create a closed shape, and it minimized the time and cost of the computer controlled cutting.
Despite it isn’t uncommon for buiding owners in Thailand to add additional layers over existing surface to created patterned exteriors, but it would be an inspiration idea for them to modify their existing shop houses because these facades conceived is low cost and also the lightweight metal materials would be cut into panels or pieces, the circular holes would be exactly increast the building attraction and in order to block out heat and sun. These an alternative renovation strategy that the design team and building owners were satisfied with.
