The Street Ratchada by Architectkidd ARCHITECTURE / 13 MAY 2017 / BY S O I S O U R C E
Permeable Shopping Mall
As part of a wider urban plan for the surrounding area, Architectkidd renovated The Street Ratchada at the busy Ratchadapisek intersection in Bangkok. Taking an opportunity to question the typical closed “big box” model of shopping malls, the aim was to create a more dynamic presence as well as to allow everyday life to permeate through into the building.
Architectkidd designed a new intermediate space attached to the front of the existing interior retail volume. This semi-outdoor atrium houses a variety of programs, displays and public functions and provides the ability to house temporary and more experimental activities to reach out to young people.
The facade becomes a mediator between the developing urban conditions and the more traditionally planned interiors. Upon first impression, the continuous metallic surface seems to convey a monumental presence but it is actually a porous layer composed of triangulated slivers that are uniquely sized and cut. The gradient transparencies of the perforated panels provide natural ventilation and reflect changing lighting conditions. At night, the lighting dematerializes the facade and creates an inviting glow from within the atrium that spreads on to the outdoor and public areas.
The Street Ratchada makes use of Thailand's traditions in metal work to overcome budgetary and fabrication constraints. Digital design combined with local fabrication was utilized to create a building that possesses technological and crafted qualities

Thanks to Architectkidd and The Street Ratchada for sharing this amazing work with us!
