From the architect. Located among a low-rise residential neighborhood, a new location for a software developer--SUNONE presents designers with a great challenge dealing with quality of living for existing residence and working condition for the new comer. In order to preserve serenity of an area, respect privacy for each residence and simultaneously create pleasing working environment for staffs, pattern of horizontal screening was introduced to the project. Not only does it create visual barrier between inside and outside; allowing no direct sight from inside to surrounding residence, but does it serve as light filter generating array of light quality for interior space.

Interior design strategy was designed to promote flexibility and transparency in work environment. In contrary to the traditional office space, SUNONE provides a range of work settings including bench desks completed with task lights for concentrated work, and informal places such as lounge/bar setting for group meeting and chats. This socially oriented space is intended to improve the possibilities for social interaction among staffs rather than previously tended electronic communication.

Truly the most delightful feature of an interior space is the design of interior screen that scattered throughout space. While exterior screen reflects technological character of company's field of business, interior screen, on the opposite, directly reflects adventurous personality of the owner and staffs. Industrial material like colorful PVC strip curtain has been cleverly incorporated through the building to reflect energy and liveliness of these extreme-sport lovers. Besides operating as space divider and enclosure, this screen, with its transparency property, also functions as an indicator of an area’s privacy level. By using PVC strip curtains, openness and transparency of office space are maintained.

With deliberate architectural strategy, the two building typologies, office and home, can perfectly fuse in one environment regardless of their architectural style. By creating a work space in the low corporate presence, SUNONE has successfully provides a place that encourages both collaboration and relaxation among its staffs.

Very nice workplace but only thing that’s not practical. Their task chairs which it’s not ergonomic chair. It’s nice for meeting room rather than to propose for more than 8 hours sitting.

norbert · November 21, 2009

genious use of industrial material.
been to the designer's resort works, and loved them!
bravo for thai architect

Kornelia · November 20, 2009

Excellent work. It's beautiful, functional and special pleace.

Office worker · November 13, 2009

It's really more than half a day that u spent time at the office (with yr eyes opened!). So, it is always the dream of every office people to work in such a nice place like this.
The exterior really stands out and makes this building became the landmark. The interior is also distinguished, cozy, relaxing, and good for someone there who need creativity. Many corners in the office are very nice to sit and work on yr laptop. The large single space also let your imagination flows. I wish I could work in a nice place like this! So jealous the ones who are working there. I think this is one of the coolest office in Thailand...

Eric Huang · November 13, 2009

I couldn't believe my eyes as to what I was looking, can an office be like this also???

really amazing... I wish I could work in such kind of place full of luxury and comfort.

Tom Markey · November 13, 2009

Being a Business development executive I often visit companies hence I visited Sun Systems too. I was so jealous looking at the people there working in full comfort..The working environment created by the innovative architecture and interior designer is ideal for working. All I know is color selection plays an important role in order to keep positive energy flow and this was so nice handled at Sun One. The greenery all around is visible from inside providing additional relaxation to our eyes

I would give 10/10 from my side

Terada · November 13, 2009

I had the privilege to visit this company once to meet a friend who is working there. The first thing that came out of my mouth was "WOW". Everything there, right from the entrance is so impressive. I have never seen such an office in my life. They have a unique meeting room and one of it's kind of stairs...

I ended up asking " Do you have a job?"

Veevaeck · November 13, 2009

Working at Sun One is a unique experience, I feel enthusiastic and energetic. The entire credit goes to the awesome architecture and interior design.

I have worked and visited offices of various companies in India, China, Egypt but most of them follow the same trend, Sun One is off the track, the building architecture, interior decoration, furniture design, color combination is fabulous. Not only me, all my colleagues prefer to spend as much time as they can at Sun One.

Nutapong · November 13, 2009

Office is the place where we spend half of our day hence we need to have a good office interior that helps us in regulating our mood, and it also helps us to work efficiently.Here at Sun Sytems, extra care has been taken to provide a homely atmosphere for employees so that they can deliver their best.
