Separated: All fine dining restaurants are separated to connect indoor and outdoor space and create better dining atmosphere. Moreover, they are combined together with outdoor dining plaza.
Icon: The new glasshouse, a brand-new icon of Sindhorn building, represents new image of the project, so it is shaped as crystal and this crystalized form is clad with glass to match its own concept.
View & Ventilation: By splitting all restaurants apart, Each restaurant and Sindhorn building can easily access from public road. the new and existing buildings also get better view and ventilation too.
Structure: The special structure takes double spans, each span length is 25 meter and at both ends are cantilevered as long as 20 meter, so that makes a 90 meter long roof. Moreover, this main structure is designed as the X shape to preserve the big tree in the site.
Shade: Moreover, the glasshouse location is on Wireless road where there are a lot of big trees as the road symbolic. The roof is designed specially to reflect the feeling of dining under tree shading.
