Chapman Taylor creates renovation design concept for the Kasetsart University Business Education Building in Bangkok

Chapman Taylor has created the concept design for the renovation of Kasetsart University’s Business Education Building in Bangkok.

The project includes interior design for the whole complex and architectural design for the façade.

Function Room and all day dining

The current building is a seven-storey reinforced concrete structure with brick and plaster walls, with a total usable area of 9,865m² . Among the new functions provided within the building will be a training centre, a student exhibition area and a hotel and serviced apartments for university guests, including meeting rooms, a function room and other amenities.

Guest Rooms

Our design concept is inspired by the nearby emerald sea and rocky mountains as well as by local traditions, especially the local fishing culture and the importance of fishing to the local economy. Local crafts were initially produced as tools to be used in the fishing industry, with the designs later becoming more beautiful and intricate, particularly the wickerwork, and sold or exchanged for other products.

Façade options

Our concept invokes these elements and inspires a sense of calm and relaxation. The design makes use of a delicate colour palette and materials such as natural stone, wood, woven bamboo details and patterns to reflect local traditions and the surrounding context, particularly in the façade renovation.
