Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River.


Four Seasons returns to Thailand’s capital with an all-new riverside sanctuary designed by Jean-Michel Gathy, featuring a collection of signature dining and bar experiences, an urban wellness centre, light-filled event spaces and expansive outdoor courtyards and terraces

Rising above the majestic Chao Phraya River in the heart of Bangkok’s Creative District is an enclave of tiered buildings, connected at ground level by a series of indoor and outdoor spaces, quiet courtyards and lively restaurants. Art-filled spaces, sophisticated lounges and lush tropical greenery are surrounded by the gentle sounds of water features and inviting open-air terraces.  Welcome to the all-new Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River.

“The much-anticipated return of Four Seasons to Thailand’s capital is nothing short of spectacular,” says Christian Clerc, Four Seasons President, Global Operations. “Guests will be in awe of the exquisite design, the world-class restaurant and bar options, and a state-of-the-art wellness centre. As always, the unparalleled, intuitive service from Four Seasons people will be at the centre of it all. Thanks to our visionary owner-partners at Country Holdings Group Public Company Limited, this magnificent Hotel combines everything that one has come to expect of Four Seasons in Thailand and around the world.”

Located along 200 metres (650 feet) of open riverfront just 40 minutes from Suvarnabhumi International Airport along the famed Charoenkrung Road, the fourth location in the Four Seasons Thailand Collection offers myriad opportunities for locals and international travellers to make connections with each other and the exciting city that surrounds it.  Features include a 299-room hotel, destination restaurants and lounges, stunning event spaces, and an urban wellness centre like no other.  The complex also includes 366 Four Seasons Private Residences, opening in 2021.

General Manager Lubosh Barta, who began his Four Seasons career in Bangkok 16 years ago and was most recently opening General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Seoul, sums up the experience: “Like the city of Bangkok, our new Four Seasons is full of surprises, whether it’s the breath-taking river views, the rich design details, the perfect cocktail or a striking piece of art.  We look forward to offering personalised experiences in an environment of safety and trust as we embrace Four Seasons enhanced global healthy and safety program, Lead With Care, with uncompromising Four Seasons service in a truly spectacular setting.”

Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok is located within buildings design consulted by Hamiltons International architects.  In describing his vision for the interiors of Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok, lead designer Jean-Michel Gathy of DENNISTON said: “Sometimes dramatic. Sometimes intimate. But always charismatic.” High ceilings and glass walls provide breathing space, while pools and flowing water echo the constant movement of the Chao Phraya River.  Thailand’s natural beauty and the city’s urbane charms come together in every aspect of the interiors, punctuated by an art collection amassed by Gathy himself.  Celebrating the country’s legendary craftsmanship and artistry, a dedicated ART Space in partnership with MOCA Bangkok running from lobby through to the river itself showcases contemporary Thai artists in changing exhibitions.

Destination Dining, World Class Mixology

In developing the food and beverage program at Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok, a dream team of experts in cuisines, room design and hospitality innovation came together to create a collection of original dining and drinking concepts, with a star-studded team of chefs, mixologists and sommeliers in the kitchens and behind the bars.  Led by Executive Chef Andrea Accordi – previously of the eight Michelin-starred Four Seasons Hong Kong – along with French Executive Pastry Chef Bruce Trouyet, the team includes specialist culinarians in each restaurant. Philip Bischoff, who was previously lead bartender at the landmark Manhattan Bar in Singapore, now presides over the Hotel’s beverage program.

All outlets are designed by the renowned team at AvroKo, with the exception of the signature Chinese restaurant, designed by Jean-Michel Gathy.  Experiences include:

Bangkok’s Creative District

Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok is in the heart of the city’s most remarkable community.  Along the historic Charoenkrung Road and in myriad small streets and alleyways, the area is undergoing a renaissance as street food vendors are joined by food-forward restaurants, traditional crafts are side by side with bold contemporary art, and tiny stalls selling handcrafted wares sit next to eclectic shops filled with designer goods.

Along Chao Phraya River, Four Seasons guests can head to ICONSIAM, the city’s newest premium shopping mall, with direct access from the Hotel’s river dock.  Or, take a water taxi to wander the river’s canals, floating kitchens, ancient temples and charming fishing piers.

DURAVIT – Iluminar el baño, crear atmósfera a través de la luz

Eficaz y ambiental: la iluminación juega un papel muy importante en el baño. Existen tres aspectos a considerar a la hora de lograr una iluminación óptima: iluminación básica, iluminación de acento e iluminación funcional.

Mientas que la iluminación básica se utiliza para la orientación, la luz de acento persigue el factor de bienestar. Una iluminación expresiva y de alto contraste no solo proporciona vida al ambiente del baño, sino que también crea acentos hogareños. En la zona del lavabo, en cambio, el foco de luz debe resultar funcional, brillante pero sin deslumbrar.

Desde un blanco cálido, pasando por un blanco neutro o un blanco nórdico: el espectro de tonos claros va desde el cálido amarillento hasta el frío azulado. Esto significa que puede crearse una iluminación perfecta en cualquier momento del día: fría por la mañana para despejarse, cálida por la noche para facilitar la relajación.

Kirsten Schwalgien Design, transforma la planta baja de una icónica joya modernista y la reinventa en un loft residencial excepcional

La firma de diseño de interiores en Barcelona, ​​Kirsten Schwalgien Design, transforma la planta baja de una icónica joya modernista y la reinventa en un loft residencial excepcional

Todas las fotografías de Meritxell Arjalaguer

Reconocida por su experiencia en diseño de yates y destreza técnica, la diseñadora de interiores alemana Kirsten Schwalgien, afincada en Barcelona, ha transformado la planta baja de la Casa Burés, una de las joyas modernistas de la ciudad, en una residencia audaz y singular. La renovación ha sido completa, incluyendo el diseño arquitectónico y la creación de muebles a medida, respetando el icónico espacio de manera perspicaz. Este proyecto, rebautizado como LoftBuresQ, le ha valido a Kirsten Schwalgien Design prestigiosos galardones internacionales, incluido el German Design Award.

Transformando respetuosamente un espacio histórico

Se trata de uno de los mejores ejemplos de la arquitectura modernista en el distrito del Eixample de Barcelona. La ​​Casa Burés fue originalmente encargada por el magnate textil catalán Francesc Burés en 1905 y construida por Francesc Berenguer, socio de Antoni Gaudí. Su llamativa fachada, entrada ornamentada, techo de vidrieras y escalera esculpida en piedra tallada son características destacadas del edificio, que fue comprado por Bonavista Developments  y convertido en 26 apartamentos residenciales en 2014. Kirsten Schwalgien Design recibió el encargo de convertir el apartamento de la planta baja en una sofisticada residencia con un aire masculino y atemporal.

Antiguamente el piso de la planta baja de 240m2 era el lugar donde se alojaban los carruajes de la época y donde se almacenaban los productos agrícolas. Ahora, se ha transformado en un loft de dos dormitorios con una distribución versátil y abierta que mantiene los elementos icónicos de su pasado, como lo solicita el Departamento de Patrimonio Arquitectónico de Barcelona, pero también en línea con la propia filosofía de Schwalgien. El diseño actual mantiene la puerta de madera original cuidadosamente restaurada y todas las vigas y pilares permanecen descubiertos, sosteniendo el techo (abovedado) y conservado la típica “Volta Catalana”. Una secuencia de ventanas industriales aseguran el aislamiento y permiten que entre la luz natural, tan importante en las construcciones arquitectónicas modernistas.

Detalles de diseño experimentales realizados a medida 

El elemento común en los proyectos de diseño de Kirsten Schwalgien es la personalización; casi todos los muebles se han diseñado a medida para que coincida con el estilo de vida y la estética personal del cliente, así como con el contexto del espacio. Schwalgien trabaja con materiales naturales tanto como sea posible, haciendo hincapié en resaltar sus características únicas inherentes, un proceso que da como resultado lo que ella llama “belleza no convencional”. En la cocina de Loft BuresQ, por ejemplo, los gabinetes de castaño ahumado están enchapados y tratados para mantener la calidad táctil original de la madera y enfatizar sus patrones de vetas únicos. Otro ejemplo de diseño a medida lo encontramos en la mesa del comedor, que presenta una tapa de latón vintage en bruto sin tratar, con cada una de las patas hechas con los materiales principales utilizados en el loft (chapa de tulipier y chapa de castaño ahumado).

“Para mí, es muy importante utilizar materiales duraderos y envejecidos con gracia, tanto por su sostenibilidad como porque te permiten proporcionar diseños con estilo y carácter propio mediante materiales puros”. – Kirsten Schwalgien

Experimentando con acabados innovadores, el diseño alterna texturas frías y cálidas, brillantes y rugosas, suaves y duras, para diseñar espacios que estimulan los sentidos: en todo el loft, la chapa barnizada de poro abierto crea un contraste exitoso con las paredes originales de ladrillo visto, mientras que en el suelo combina microcemento con parquet.

La experiencia de Schwalgien de más de 16 años en diseño de yates demuestra su destreza técnica y la meticulosa atención al detalle. Destaca la tecnología de vanguardia utilizada, como el sistema LED biodinámico integrado en el techo abovedado, las persianas y cortinas que proporcionan iluminación sutil en todo el loft o en sistema domótico que recibe información de varios sensores para adaptar la luz, el color y el brillo según la hora del día.

El enfoque disruptivo y fuera de lo común de Schwalgien maximiza constantemente el espacio, la privacidad y la estética a través de detalles de diseño inteligentes, como puertas corredizas ocultas y un sistema de aire acondicionado cuidadosamente oculto. En el patio lleno de luz, un conducto de aire está completamente cubierto por un jardín vertical; y el dormitorio principal está separado de la sala por una estructura de madera en forma de caja que también alberga un vestidor y un baño de visitas. Otras características audaces y seguras de Loft BuresQ incluyen las obras de arte, obtenidas y encargadas por Kirsten Schwalgien Design, o el letrero de neón sobre la pared de la cocina, que dice “May the bridges I burn light the way” (que los puentes que quemo iluminen el camino).

Acerca de Kirsten Schwalgien Design 

Con sede en Barcelona, ​​Kirsten Schwalgien Design es un estudio internacionalmente galardonado y especializado en el diseño de superyates, proyectos residenciales y espacios comerciales en todo el mundo. Con un enfoque vanguardista y experiencial la fundadora Schwalgien es conocida por resaltar las características únicas de los materiales naturales de alta calidad que emplea en cada proyecto y, como resultado, crea lo que ella llama ‘belleza no convencional’. La misión de su trabajo es lograr Gesamtkunstwerk, que significa una “obra de arte total” en el alemán nativo de Schwalgien. O en otras palabras, un enfoque de 360 ​​grados donde todos los detalles forman parte integral del proyecto en su conjunto. Schwalgien ha obtenido reconocimiento mundial, así como una serie de prestigiosos premios de diseño, incluidos el MUSE Design Award, los WIN Awards y The German Design Award, y recientemente ha sido nombrada miembro del jurado de los World Interiors News Awards 2020 (WIN Awards).

The spacious bathroom also impresses with its exclusive washbasin system with RGB lighting and designer fittings, indirect lighting of the handle niches and embedded STARON® mineral stone washbasin. Ceramic floor coverings are part of the exquisite ambience.

Escapade Living started out with a simple but bold idea, to design the ultimate experience for motorsport enthusiasts. This should include close-up viewing of the world’s best racing and direct personal usage of one of the most iconic circuits. The accommodation needed to be modern and comfortable and suitable for sharing with friends and family. There should also be a performance-led wellness offering and all should be delivered within a welcoming environment.


The creation was Escapade Silverstone, a space which seamlessly merges hospitality and motorsport in an original and distinct way on the edge of Silverstone’s iconic track.

Escapade Silverstone includes 60 individual residences, a clubhouse and car storage. From May 2022, it will be open for guests to come and stay and experience all that it offers.

Escapade Living will offer a selection of residences for purchase. This will enable buyers to call a piece of Silverstone their own, have unique motorsport benefits and to share in the investment returns.

If you would like to find out more about ownership, future stays, car storage or just be the first to hear about what we have planned, please share your details.


The middle sector of Silverstone is the best in the whole season for me. Copse, Maggots and Becketts are an unbelievable set of corners, when you get it right and know where to position the car – it’s phenomenal.

The residences and clubhouse border Copse, Maggotts and Becketts – providing unrivalled proximity to the circuit’s most nail-biting set of corners. 

We’re building a community that shares a collective lust for performance, speed and great machines.

Escapade Silverstone is completely integrated with the circuit – an authentic experience borne out of the world’s foremost racetrack. The result is a unique expression of Silverstone’s purpose.

We received full planning at the end of 2019 and we will complete construction in May 2022. We’ve assembled a team that spans decades of experience in hospitality and property development.



Escapade Living creates destinations that are entirely of their surroundings, whilst also providing owners with the opportunity to make attractive returns from unique world-class property. We share common interests with our owners and guests, and we aren’t afraid to pursue our passions. When guests stay with us, we want them to be able to focus on what they enjoy – everything has been created with that in mind and to ensure each stay is effortless on their part. We’re in talks with some other equally unique locations, and we can’t wait to tell you more about them.
