Living in harmony

Taking inspiration from its waterfront address, The River condominiums are one of Bangkok’s most prestigious and interesting addresses. 

Soaring above some of the city’s most luxurious real estate, the two towers bring contemporary design to inner city living in this upscale neighborhood.

Exclusive design and commitment

Early involvement in traffic analysis and systematic project management allowed us to meet the high standards of this project.

We also collaborated with the building’s designer, Stephen J. Leach Hr. + Associated Limited, to create custom car interiors worthy of the residencies while delivering a smooth ride that is as seamless and luxurious as the towers themselves. 

Specifications from the KONE Design signalization series include a Car Operating Panel (COP) with multimedia keypad and matching landing signalization device. 

To further maximize people flow and reliability, our elevators are connected to the KONE E-Link™ monitoring system, and provide real-time information on the status of the equipment and statistical reports on performance.  

The project represents four years of detailed analyses, meticulous planning and precise execution.

Background

Living in harmony

Soaring above some of Bangkok’s most luxurious real estate, the two towers that make up The River are the newest stars on the city’s skyline. Bringing contemporary design to inner city living, their curved glass façades and stunning interiors add luxurious new apartments to an upscale neighborhood.

Standing at 252 meters, The River South Tower is one of Bangkok’s tallest structures. Its “little sister”, The River North Tower, rises to 150 meters. Facilities include a wide range of services, from entertainment and dining in the podium, to fitness centers, rooftop gardens, and much more.

Solution

Exclusive design

KONE collaborated with the building’s designer, Stephen J. Leach Jr. + Associates Limited, to create a custom car interior worthy of the suites crafted by the renowned French interior architects J+H Boiffi ls.

Car interiors have been designed to create an aesthetically pleasing experience while delivering a smooth ride that is as seamless and luxurious as the towers themselves. Specifications from the KONE Design signalization series include a Car Operating Panel (COP) with multimedia keypad and a matching landing signalization device. The signalization panel accommodates building-specific information and functions, bringing usability to a new height.

With such high caliber residencies, passenger waiting times need to be minimal, if not eliminated completely. KONE’s traffic analysis and planning tools helped to define a fully optimized People Flow®.

Each tower includes seven KONE MiniSpace™ elevators and one KONE MonoSpace® elevator in the podium that connects the two towers. All KONE solutions are equipped with KONE EcoDisc® hoisting machines which help reduce energy consumption by using 50 percent less energy than conventional traction machines. To further maximize people flow and reliability, KONE elevators are connected to the KONE E-Link™ monitoring system, and provide real-time information on the status of the equipment and statistical reports on performance.

"We appointed a designated project management team to make sure the project ran smoothly and all installation goals were met," says Jirasakdi Sarayodhin, Field Operations Director for KONE.
