A Headquarters Building for Thailand's Leader in the Salon Industry
Whitespace Architects and Interior Retail Design specialists collaborated to create a signature headquarters building for J&B’s- projecting their leadership position in the Thai salon Industry.
Serving the dual functions of headquarters offices and multi-floor retail outlet- our designers created a landmark building with an atrium-like the prow of a ship projecting retail at the lower levels. Located in the centre of Bangkok, on one of its busiest thoroughfares – J&B’s headquarters is a three-dimensional marketing statement to the city.
Consideration for the tropical context- sunscreens became a design feature for the southern street-facing facade. Like a fabric sail- a laser-cut aluminium unfurls above the ship’s prow with custom perforation creating a translucent effect. While dramatically reducing the solar gain to the office floors, it allows views from the inside out throughout the day.
Our architectural solution blends functional practicality, commercial effectiveness while building a proud image of for J&B brand.
