Life One Wireless Road is a condominium with multi-levelled landscaped gardens designed in the heart of a crowded city.
The vision of the owner and the design teams to create a quality landscape that enhances modern life in Bangkok’s CBD continued throughout the project, from the commencement to completion. Regarded as the most dynamic, fast growing and populous city with the advent of the air pollution crisis. Therefore, we strongly proposed the landscape design concept involving the harmony of human and nature on the site context at Wireless road, one of the city’s first major boulevards and quickly became the city’s Embassy Row at the heart of capital.This road also only a short walk to Lumphini Park, the biggest central park of Bangkok.
Creating the unique characteristic of the landscape with a harmony with nature. The preservation of the existing Bodhi trees located on site is one of the mission to inherit the natural heritage to the residents, to protect a natural habitat for the living creatures and to sustain the green area to our planet. All Bodhi trees are well integrated as part of the new garden composing the variety of plants, a large open lawn and green area creating the enclosed greenery within the city area as “the urban oasis”.”The urban oasis” is all nestled by the picturesque landscape achieving many design goals; as an aesthetic memorable ambience of the legendary Wireless road, as a main garden for the residents to interact with nature, and as an urban ecology landscape for the living creatures as well as a lung for a city. Comprehensively defined at the conceptual design stage, the lush landscape setting would not create the great impact if there was no high level of integration with other areas. Therefore, not only the ground landscape, but also the other on-structure landscape floors have been well integrated with one goal.
On the ground level landscape, among the diversity of the surroundings of the site; canal, pier, sky train infrastructure, one of the most heavy traffic road. A picturesque backdrop for the semi-outdoor lobby, the various layers of plantation, from over 15 m. high mature trees to the several heights of small trees and shrubs with large open lawn are well composed and designed to achieving concept of truly enclosed natural courtyard. Elaborately integrated with the fully evergreen garden of well-selected plantations in different textures, forms and heights, the feature pavilion and its reflective pond stand dominantly as a welcoming landscape setting. This one of a kind garden brings in the absolute serenity and the prime privacy for the residents at Life One Wireless located on the legendary Wireless road in the hustle and bustle Bangkok’s CBD.
Not only the water feature cools down the outdoor space as well as creates the sense of auditory in the enclosed environment but also the softscape design is intentionally designed to enhance the human scale by using the cluster of mature evergreen trees in various heights while the visual quality and privacy by using the small-medium trees and the soft touch by using the variety of shrub and groundcover.
At the 10th Floor podium level landscape, “the cascade garden” is strategically designed as an urban sanctuary for the residents to breath the fresh air, wander around the greenery and motivate their sensory in a place nestled by the richness of greenery. The hierarchy of space formed by the hardscape compositions, the arrangement of plant and the level changes meticulously creates a sequence of experience, the visual harmony as well as the proper functionality in the garden.
At the rooftop 42nd and 43rd levels landscape, “the sky park” is strategically designed to integrate two floors as one garden connecting by the terrace garden. Therefore, the functional spaces are connected with the exceptional experiences. The upper terrace features the dazzling pool and its vanishing edge with the stunning panoramic Bangkok’s CBD view. The lower terrace serves as the various garden settings from sky-viewed bridge, chill-out on the sky corner, garden seat to the cozy amphitheater surrounded by shades of tree. The multi-leveled landscape stands still dominantly on the top of this iconic building among the vibe of Bangkok’s skyline. Residents can be strolling around the spectacular sky pool, soothing the fresh air in the lush greenery gardens and pampering yourself among the dramatic Bangkok’s skyline at Life One Wireless and its second-to-none landscape settings.
Impeccably embraced by the richness of nature, “Life one wireless” strongly enhances the quality of urban living in harmony with nature. Meticulously encapsulated by the essence of serenity and featured the lush multi-layers of evergreen landscape and other landscape elements creating the secluded garden setting with strong hierarchy of space.
