Despite being in the centre of one of Bangkok’s busiest commercial districts, the UBCII still manages to retain a sense of calm and tranquillity. Its modern façade and intelligent architecture complements the surrounding area, from the scenic Benchasiri Park to the hustle and bustle of the Emporium Shopping Complex, one of Bangkok’s leading lifestyle hotspots. The UBCII highlights the three core areas of sustainable city development: urbanism, cultural landscape, and architecture. By taking advantage of its environmental aesthetics, design, conservation, and maximising its locations potential, the UBCII evokes the concept of a balanced relationship between a building and its environment.
Benchasiri Park offers a welcome relief from Bangkok’s demanding urban life. Offering a variety of outdoor sports facilities, including outdoor gym, jogging circuit, swimming pool, and basketball courts. Benchasiri Park also hosts a number of open air events throughout the year.
The Sukhumvit area boasts some of the best restaurants in Bangkok and is evidence of the diversity of cultures that meet here. Eateries range from trendy international restaurants to “hole-in-the-wall” noodle shops, cheap street vendors to expensive haute cuisine and with décor from minimalist to the luxurious.
Sprawling over seven floors, the Emporium Shopping Complex is a shopaholic’s paradise. Located in the heart of Sukhumvit, the Emporium offers a dazzling array of international designers, world-class brands and exclusive jewellery, sports shops and everything to appease your audio, visual and digital needs.
