“城中城”（Town In Town）距离曼谷市中心约15公里，是位于Sriwara路上的一个著名商业区，周围分布着众多社区和公司。该项目的业主是几位年轻的创业者，他们选择了一座建造于2014年的四层高的半独立建筑，希望将其改造为能够适应当下需求的办公场所。
About fifteen kilometres from central Bangkok, “Town In Town” is a wellknown business area on Sriwara Road, surround by the great community and many businesses. At first, the layout was typical but did not appropriate to the programme. The owners are young entrepreneurs who conduct several businesses. To build their hub, they chose a four-storey semi-detached building that had been constructed since 2014.
On the first floor, the layout was adjusted regarding the number of the car park. The clear height below the beam is about 2.5 metre is cramped for a reception and shop, so four layers of metal grids were hung instead of a flat ceiling. In front of the cosmetic flagship store is a waiting area where can be used for return and pick-up. Along the corridor is displayed by the products. Behind a big door at the end of the stair is a semi-outdoor metal staircase leading to the upper floor.

Because the service area was packed in “L” shape behind the building, the staffs can walk around. The fire staircase at the back of the building was redesigned for letting natural light come through. By removed the previous staircase connects the second floor moreover the customers can walk around the clothing the shop. Furthermore, two toilets were shrunk into one powder room.
At the centre, the slim frames carry the main staircase and enhance a whole building. In the other side, the white metal shelf does not only display the products, but it is also the stair structure. A quarter of the third floor was cut out and left open for the showroom beneath. The owners’ working room where next to the void can connect with the meeting room at the back by keeping the door open. The suspended fluorescent pendants were hung from the ceiling, made working area light up.
