Bangkoks Latest Bling Skyscraper

In the bling world of luxury architecture jewels are a popular motif for architects to riff on with the newly proposed 222-metre tall Marque Sukhumvit in Bangkok as just the latest of these luxury towers.

The proposed skyscraper is to be situated in an emerging luxury district of the Thai capital next to the Emporium shopping mall and its new rival, EmQuartier.

Prices aren't cheap, with even the smallest 2 bedroom units costing $1 million each, a new record for the Thai city. With 50 storeys of accommodation, residents of the 149 apartments will be able to enjoy floor to ceiling glazing throughout with window heights of between 3 and 3.4 metres creating spacious interiors.

The specification sees each apartment not only with its only living and dining area but even a powder room whilst the more expensive units will have terraces for the master bedrooms complete with plunge pools for a waking swim. Each of the penthouse units will drop the plunge pool for a full size swimming pool complete with islands of furniture on it.

The shape of the tower is based on a slender jewel with the glazed fašade designed to deliberately evoke the reflectivity of a diamond. It's designed by prog-rock sounding architect firm, Palmer & Turner, whilst the developer is the Major Development Public Company Limited.
