Navakitel Design Hotel

The hotel’s original building was a two-storey apartment with a reinforced concrete structure. In order to transform the function of an apartment into a hotel, the architect decided to maintain the original building floor plan as the existing rooms were already of a similar size and design. The architect chose a thin and sharp steel plate for this seven-storey concrete structure to reduce the ‘thickness’ of the building and to invite natural light into the interiors.

Special attention was paid to the electrical system installation. Lighting decoration and other necessary equipment were installed in an industrial style. Instead of concealing it with gypsum ceiling, parts of the MEP systems have been exposed to create the building aesthetics. Using the expertise of local craftsmanship, including ironworkers, carpenters and masons, the distinctive characteristics of Thai traditional art was also added to the hotel design.
