Onyx Hospitality Group completed the transformation of Shama Lakeview Asoke Bangkok one year since the property was rebranded. The property’s developer, JR Kyushu Business Development (Thailand) Co. Ltd., particularly transformed the property’s studios, apartments, lobby, pool terrace and public areas.

The new interiors were conceptualized by Bangkok-based ASC Interior, which drew inspiration from the nearby Benjakitti Park and Lake that many of the apartments overlook. The color palette used is dominated by blues from the sky and lake, and greens from the park’s trees and shrubs.

The lobby has a custom Murano glass chandelier of wave-like ripples. The lobby connects to a lounge area with a coworking corner and coffee bar operated by the neighboring The Coffee Club.

There are specially-commissioned art, installations and furnishings throughout the property’s communal spaces and its 429 studios and apartments.

As a nod to the property developer’s Japanese roots, Shama Lakeview Asoke also introduced a collection of tatami studios and one-bedroom apartments, each with a raised tatami seating area.
