Patom Organic Living in Bangkok

Tucked away in Thonglor’s prime residential neighborhood, the newly constructed building serves as a shop/showroom for Patom body care products,  a small 25-seat café and a place for raising ecological awareness and sustainable living through a series of workshops and farmers market held in the garden, selling fresh produce from the local network of organic farmers.

The small wood-framed glass building designed by NITAPROW sits on a slightly raised mound covered by wild grass and ferns that naturally soften its rectangular footprint while carefully preserving an existing line of fruit trees.  The building’s transparency and its modest size set out to unveil the expanse of the lush garden around and beyond its volume, which in turn create a setting where passersby can catch a clear glimpse of the livelihood inside the glass enclosure alongside the garden’s natural surroundings.

Hey Archy, I was in Philadelphia recently and was struck by the ways in which older buildings complemented newer, more modern structures. Do you have any favorite structures that highlight this kind of relationship between old and new, either in Philadelphia or elsewhere?

We have Philadelphia and Pennsylvania on separate feature posts and posted extensively about art and architecture of Philadelphia. Here are some structures that highlight the relationship between old and new:
