KHUN by yoo inspired by Starck – Thong Lo district, Bangkok – Thailand’s first ever branded condominium project.
SANSIRI sets to revolutionize Thai real estate market by teaming up with world-renowned design company YOO and their creative director Philippe Starck to create “KHUN by yoo inspired by Starck”, Thailand’s first-ever branded condominium project worth 4 billion baht.
Located in the heart of Thong Lo, the project takes ‘Industrial Heritage’ as its design concept combining Thong Lo’s urban lifestyle with the use of unique, elegant materials. Another innovation is its sales gallery, presented in the form of a material exhibition, also a first-ever in Thailand, to allow target consumers – young executives passionate about designed objects – to be inspired.
Thong Lo is a location that both Thai and foreign customers love as it is nestled in the centre of the Sukhumvit area surrounded by leading hospitals, schools, community malls, shops and restaurants. It is also very near to BTS Thonglor station and BRT Grey Line which will be opened soon.
KHUN by yoo inspired by Starck is located on a 1-rai land next to Thong Lo Soi 12. It is a 27-story condominium project with 148 units in total. There are 3 different types of residences – 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, 3-bedroom and penthouse – with space ranging from 41.50-302.75 square metre, worth 4 billion baht in total. Price for each unit starts at 15 million baht (£345,000 aprox).
The highlight of KHUN by yoo inspired by Starck is its design concept. Entitled “Industrial Heritage”, yoo wanted the concept to reflect the modernity of Thong Lo, a residential area with rich history that is elegant, modern and unique. Symmetrical patterns and the selection of rich materials like luxurious marble, unpolished concrete, copper and terrazzo are some of the elements put together to tell this story. The interior design plays with contrasting colours and the use of Philippe Starck’s signature playful yet functional furniture and furnishing products.
Wide green spaces are also provided inside the project where residents can relax in nature while living in the center of metropolitan area with all facilities provided including fitness centre, swimming pool on the rooftop decorated with fiber optic lighting system offering 360-degree view and automatic parking.
