Project Description

 

Archismith has built a garden and living oasis enclosed by 20,000 glass blocks for a residential development sales office in Bangkok, Thailand.

Named the “Glass Fortress” the building’s purpose is to protect its content as a rival company is located close by.

Walls that are able to remove noise as well as block the untidy scenery of construction out front were necessary.  “To reduce the claustrophobic feeling of the space, glass block was chosen as the main material since it serves the purpose and natural light can still get through,” said Jirawit Yamkleeb, co-founder of Archismith.

The future possibilities of the fortress are endless. From an Airbnb to a restaurant the building would serve as a quiet and beautiful space for any business venture.
