New York-based architecture and interior design firm Wilson Associates announced that Ong-Art Ngamnarongkij will lead the firm’s new Bangkok studio, which will focus specifically on architecture and design of resort projects.
Formerly head of design at Blink’s Bangkok studio, Ngamnarongkij will now serve as design director for architecture for the newest Wilson Associates office. His responsibilities include conceptualization of the overall design direction of a given project; interpretation of the owner’s requirements to create a design that reflects the client’s vision and operator’s brand standards; and respond to the specific nuances of the target demographic as well as the project’s location, history, culture, budget and schedule.
Ngamnarongkij will be involved in each stage of design, working with the project team internally and externally. He will be a primary point-of-contact along with key members of his design team.
Prior to joining Wilson Associates, Ngamnarongkij designed hotels for brands such as Four Seasons, The Ritz-Carlton and W Hotels.
