)-- Archetype Group, a leading multi-disciplinary construction consultancy in Asia, announced today their appointment as Project and Construction Manager for the new prestigious and iconic MahaNakhon Tower in Bangkok.
The MahaNakhon Tower is a striking mixed-use development in the heart of Bangkok’s central business district. It features a unique design that introduces a three-dimensional ribbon of architectural ‘pixels’ circling the tower’s full height.
At 77 stories, and with a GFA of 135,000m2, the tower will house the Ritz-Carlton Residences, with a mix of two-to-five bedroom homes, and The Bangkok Edition Hotel, which will offer a range of outstanding amenities. At the top of the tower will be a multi-level, three-floor Terrace Bar & Restaurant with dramatic double-height spaces, private dining facilities for entertaining, and a rooftop outdoor bar with sweeping 360° views of the skyline and river, 314 metres above the city.
Mr. Pierre-Jean Malgouyres, General Director of Archetype Group, says, “Our appointment on this iconic tower revitalizes our presence in Thailand and has given us a renewed focus on our past work there. The award of this project to Archetype Group also demonstrates that we are renowned for our expertise in luxury high-rise buildings and hospitality in the region.”
The Mahanakhon Tower is estimated to be completed in 2015 and will be the highest building in Bangkok.
