Bangkok Bank
Bangkok Bank is the largest commercial bank in Thailand and one of the largest regional banks in Southeast Asia. A longtime client of Janko Rasic Architects, the bank asked the architects to assist in evaluating its real estate options and ultimately plan and design its new office in New York City. In the design of the office, Janko Rasic Architects took advantage of the irregular floor plate by combining a mixture of open office areas with exposed slab ceilings and private office with dropped ceiling which allowed all staff members access to natural light. Design elements such an inverted tiled ceiling at the reception area and a living green wall by one of the open work areas draw inspiration from the architecture and landscape of Thailand. The living green wall also helps to improve indoor air quality.
