Canopies Leading the Way
EmQuartier Bangkok Mall covers around 600,000 m² of retail space in downtown Bangkok with 1,000 local and international stores. The Texlon® ETFE canopies at the ever-busy Phrom Phong BTS Skytrain station leads a myriad of people in-and-out. They are happy to be protected from the harsh tropical climate of Bangkok. As these amazing canopies connect the skytrain with Em Quartier Mall and Emporium Mall, they handle with many level changes and escalators. They also connect BTS and the famous Sukhumvit road. To sum up, the ETFE canopies connect all means of public transport, public walkways and two famous malls..
As opposed to the mundane metal-roof link ways, the use of Texlon® ETFE there compliments that area: a premium shopping district. It also serves to shepherd people into the surrounding high-end shopping malls from the public realm. The supporting steelwork is essentially artwork with tree like structures and long ribbon-like canopies.
Vector Foiltec’s Beneficial Worldwide Presence
Vector Foiltec was involved from the onset. Technical discussions were held over workshops in Bangkok and advice offered to the team of consultants for their initial concepts. Being an international company with presence in most major cities of the world, Vector Foiltec’s office in Paris provided further service to a key member of the developer’s team of consultant, a Paris-based consultancy. In this instance, Vector Foiltec’s international presence has yet again proven to be a major advantage to developers, architects, consultants, contractors, anywhere in the world!
A distinctive feature at EmQuartier shopping mall is The Helix Skylight.
When you are next in Bangkok, you will be sure to visit the prestigious shopping malls in that district. Chances are, you might just be walking under the architecturally elegant, organic linkways clad in our Texlon® ETFE.
