located in the sena nikhom area of bangkok, thailand, old taverns have been brightly renovated by thaipan studio to create a coffee shop for the east garden café. the company has come to define the story of this gathering space with white tones and vivrant construction patterns – using bricks and blocks to create different forms.
outdoor corridor adorned with grassy, fine-textured vegetation and white patterned panels that define the space
thaipan studio has adopted a simple approach by creating outdoor corridors – large and small — similar to the original layout and construction which facilitated the design process. these pathways directly lead visitors to the coffee house, providing them with a serene experience thanks to grassy vegetation and white minimal designs. on the other hand, the interior of the café is defined by white and green tones painted over the existing walls, with added graphics that reflect the owner’s vision and needs.
