dwp designs a new dynamic campus for Thailand’s leading private university.
27 June, 2011
One of the leading private universities in Thailand, Sripatum University saw the need to upgrade its campus in the CBD area of Phaholyothin Road, Bangkok.
Architecture and interior design firm dwp was commissioned to design the interiors of the new 14-level building. The ultimate objective? To find a way to increase efficiency and enforce a dynamic student-focused learning environment.
The solution for the new 22,000 sqm facility reflects Sripatum’s wish for a dynamic and interactive design concept, one that contributes to their vision of being the leading university for the new generation.
’Sripatum’, which means “source of knowledge that blooms like a lotus flower”, is not only the inspiration for the university logo; the design concept was established to inspire knowledge and learning, by interpreting the symbolism of the lotus flower.
Organic forms and colours are inspired by the lotus plant and its growth pattern, and presents itself in interior spaces that complement and enhance the building’s architecture.
Multifunctional spaces, inclusive of multimedia rooms, libraries, reading rooms, conferencing facilities, auditoriums and general faculty offices meet with a colourful, edgy non-conforming design.
Vibrant graphics, which appear as playful patterns on the carpets, graphics wall and way-finding system, have been designed to encourage creativity.
Also given the sheer size of Sripatum University, way-finding has been incorporated into all internal and external spaces.
The result is an inspiring learning environment that promotes study and function, while breaking the monotony of a typical classroom setting.
