AP (Thailand) Public Company Limited, the highly-esteemed developer behind some of Thailand’s most notable residential properties, launches its most recent RHYTHM property, a 44-floor timeless design masterpiece towering high above the epicentre of one of city’s most creative areas, Charoen Krung, a neighbourhood known for its burgeoning art, food and shopping scene.
Perched effortlessly on a 4-2-76.7 Rai plot of land positioned a mere 100 metres from Shrewsbury International School, residents will be able to gaze upon delightful riverside vistas of the Chao Phraya’s meanderings, while simultaneously appreciating some of Bangkok’s most prestigious landmarks: Mahanakorn Tower, Lebua, Iconsiam and the green foliage of the distant Bangkrajao.
But for the residents of RHYTHM Charoenkrung Pavillion, the focus is more on what’s on the inside, a safe and private space set apart from the loud noise and fog of Bangkok. Priding itself as being Bangkok’s latest “Luxury Gated Community”, no essential lifestyle need was left out as the developer carried out intense focus groups to unearth what it is a “space for all generations” would entail.
A DESIGN FOR LIFE
Curated specifically for the needs of the growing family, Shrewsbury employees and students and the successful achievers working in the CBD (Silom, Sathorn and Rama 3), the entire project was based on interviews with young generation entrepreneurs, local and international families living in the area and the Shrewsbury network. From the green ethos and fresh quality air emitted from the building’s extensive air-purifying trees and garden grounds to the carefully planned and separated common spaces, all with a PM2.5 protection system, catering to the needs of families with children and individuals in need of decompression and down time, the design of the entire property was born and developed from the customer’s point of view.
OPEN SPACE, SHADE & FRESH AIR IN THE HEART OF THE CITY
The green and gated courtyard, which has direct access to Charoenkrung and Chan roads with a separate drive way and walkway, is an idyllic place for nature lovers. Inspired by the Japanese word “Shinrin-Yoku”, a trip into this green and gated community is meant to conjure up that moment one takes a recreational and relaxing trip into the forest in order to improve one’s own well-being. The magic moments of time spent in the forest are re-lived in the garden grounds which also feature activities tending to the recreational needs of all: little kids can ride their bikes, wanderers can increase the daily step count on their pedometer, social groups can gather on the lawn for picnics and individuals can get ensconced in a book or catch up on a podcast while breathing in fresh air.
Those who find themselves too warm might head to one of the Pavillions within the Pavillion: a study Pavillion for hard-working students, a social Pavillion to mingle with neighbours and guests and a reading Pavillion for the bookworms and business-savvy. Floor-to-ceiling windows of the luxuriously decked space brimming with neutral and golden tones look out onto the garden grounds, making it seem like a world away from the traffic and pollution of downtown Bangkok. Where most properties of the city look out onto the concrete, the design of RHYTHM Charoenkrung Pavillion insists residents having “green daylight” with “no pollution”. Fresh air quality was also kept in mind within each of the units, which are kitted out with high quality air filtration systems (PM2.5 CO2 control filters) that ensure consistent fresh air throughout the day and night.
FLEXIBLE & CONVERTIBLE – AN ALL-PURPOSE LIVING SPACE
The residential building, directly accessed from the site’s Chan road entrance, is comprised of a healthy mix of flexible unit options catered to families and individuals. The 1-bedrooms, starting at 35sqm and a slightly larger 1-bedroom plus (43.5 sq.m.) are beautifully designed and equipped for high-achievers working in the CBD and Shrewsbury officers looking to minimise the time they spend travelling to and from work; the rooms feature a walk-in closet, closed kitchen, separate bedroom and a large living room for flexible living space, with the larger option also offering a dining room and an extra room for multi-purpose use such as a study, music room or extra bedroom.
The 2-bedroom units, starting at 75sqm and 3 bedroom units, starting at 134sqm, are lavishly designed for growing and extended families with visiting guests in mind, who want their kids to be able to walk to school. Highlights include island kitchen counters, flexible space options (maid room, extra storage room, laundry space and separate private zones). Penthouse options go up to 228sqm. 90% of the units have a river-facing view design, with 100% parking space.
A SUBLIME VIEW IN THE SKY
Perhaps the most prestigious highlight of the property is the state-of-the-art and roof-top facilities on offer between the 42nd and 44th floors. Starting with the riverscape commune in the sky, residents can rest easy overlooking riverside views in the gentleman’s club inspired Sky Lounge, or have a seat at the Sky Terrace and Semi-outdoor lounge, all espousing a timeless and classic design aesthetic with furniture and accessories mimicking the river’s waves and curves. Luxe meeting rooms are within reach for big business decisions and a multi-generation Play Space is nearby for kids and adults to enjoy, featuring games, beanbags and even slides using organic materials.
The 43rd floor is home to the “Cloud Ocean” – a striking infinity swimming pool and cloud pavilion overlooking one of the city’s most glorious riverside scenes, with an adjacent Jacuzzi for unwinding and a kid’s pool for some fun splashing around. Wellness junkies can delight in using the gym that features the best and in cardio, strength, body weight and functional training equipment as well as kinesis vision mirrors for those wishing to see their personal transformation more clearly. Another private gym is available for those who prefer to train solo and a yoga room as well as steam room and sauna provide extra motivation for working out.
