Discreetly tucked away from the vibrant expanse of Sukhumvit Road, EYSE 43 is a hidden treasure in the luxury residential market. The challenge of the project was to offer a plethora of facilities without the feeling of confinement. This low-rise development comprises three structures: two seven-storey residential blocks; a separate low-level structure for common facilities (including a clubhouse and garden lounge on the lower floor, and a Japanese-style onsen and steam rooms on the second level); as well as a pool on the third level.
To enhance greater connection with the outdoors, each unit in EYSE 43 is oriented with a view to the natural surroundings, where the exterior garden spaces along the perimeter provide a green buffer zone. The building looks into a central garden area, where a communal space at the ground level serves as a living and dining area (serviced by an open kitchen) to enhance community living. The connecting space that transitions between the shared spaces and access to the private residences also features a pocket garden that grows herbs. Communal areas such as the lift lobbies and corridor ends are punctuated with full-length moss-covered walls.
To achieve a restorative home environment, a measured colour palette was selected. Warm, neutral tones of carefully chosen high-end materials are used for floors and countertops, complementing the soft tones of the wall finishes to achieve visual richness. High ceilings and tall entrance doors to each living unit enhance the sense of space while a side panel opens to allow a wider and more convenient opening. Sheer curtains help filter light while heavy drapes provide the necessary privacy. A large display unit with succulents and glass terrariums brings nature into the interior for a tactile experience. A kitchen island counter functions as a cooking preparation area, while doubling up as a dining space. Built-in furniture such as walk-in closets further enhances the efficient use of space.
