Designed By Thailand-based TK Studio, the Forest Pavilion is located at the center of The Forestias, one of the largest property development projects in the country. The 48,000 square meters of the urban forest at the center of the property is the highlight of the development. The Forest Pavilion functions as the sales gallery and will be converted into The Forestias Ecosystem Learning Center for sharing knowledge of the forest ecosystem. The pavilion is also an entrance gateway to the broad forest zone of The Forestias, providing a prototype of living with nature.
An immersive experience of living with nature has been achieved by utilizing the research as design strategies. The majority of the area has been designed to be green space based on these design strategies and can be seen from every angle of the Forest Pavilion. The design encourages users to access and interact with nature.
The landscape concept, ‘Symbiosis with Nature’ embraces three objectives: planting the future of symbiosis with nature, immersing the wilderness, and balancing human activities and the growth of urban forest – by transforming the rigid form of the pavilion into the natural freeform of central forest, maximizing privacy for all users and residents, while providing the authentic experience of living in the forest and the happiness of living with nature.
The Forest Pavilion is intended to be a testing lab for symbiosis with nature, so the essences of nature have been integrated with landscape design at the Forest Pavilion, where users can have a unique experience of nature in an urbanized form. The walkway and skywalk have been designed to attract people to go outdoor and to enjoy the quality of the natural environment with the tranquil, picturesque landscape.
With the international standards of SITES, WELL, and LEED being implemented, the residents will get to enjoy a living experience with nature among the urban fabric, which integrated sustainable design with a high-quality modern lifestyle.
