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 centres, rooftop gardens, and much more.
Exclusive designKONE 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 signalisation series include a Car Operating Panel (COP) with multimedia keypad and a matching landing signalisation device. The signalisation panel accommodates building-specific information and functions, bringing usability to a new height.
With such high calibre residencies, passenger waiting times need to be minimal, if not eliminated completely. KONE’s traffic analysis and planning tools helped to define a fully optimised 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 maximise 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 have a strong relationship with the developer, Raimon Land, and were involved early on in the
budgeting and design stage, says Jirasakdi Sarayodhin, Field Operations Director for KONE.
