Khun by Yoo - designer residences inspired by Philippe Starck in Bangkok's famed Thonglor
This brand new ultra-luxury condo development by Sansiri marks their first branded condominium and YOO designs first foray into Thailand.
YOO Studio is the global design studio brand co-founded by property entrepreneur John Hitchcox and renowned industrial architect and designer Philippe Starck. With 81 projects in 36 countries, YOO is considered the world’s largest non-hotel residential brand. The group cooperates with a number of world-famous designers including Philippe Starck, Kelly Hoppen, Jade Jagger, Wander and Steve Leung.
YOO Studio brought their design expertise adapted to the Thai rich architecture history under the concept of "Industrial Heritage".
Khun by YOO is a single 27-story tower with just 148 freehold condominium units, sitting on ~1 Rai of landscaped land.
As could be expected from such a collaboration, Khun by YOO puts design front and center. With a copper core running through the heart of the building, flashes of raw concrete and encased in full height insulated glass, the design gives the façade a distinctive elegant and striking appearance.
All common areas and residential units are designed by YOO inspired by Starck

Khun by Yoo is conveniently sitting between Thong Lor Soi 10 and Soi 12 on Sukhumvit Soi 55, also known as Thong Lor road - arguably Bangkok’s most sought-after address.
On any given night, Thonglor’s eclectic collection of social spots is buzzing, from hole-in-the-wall bars and open-air malls to pulsing nightclubs and sleek lounges. The area, spanning three kilometers in the heart of Bangkok’s Sukhumvit Road, has long served as a hangout spot for affluent and trendsetting Thais, drawing visitors with its exciting nightlife, fine dining and casual restaurants. These days, Thong Lor electrifies with new energy, emerging as a prominent centrer of business and leisure – with a distinctively compelling vibe. Catch the action at J Avenue, Thailand’s first community mall, for example. For heartier bites (and further sightings of high profile influencers), the district’s restaurant options leave little to be desired—whether one chooses cosmopolitan brunch at Rocket, Roast or Tribeca or creative Thai fare at Soul Food Mahanakorn or Bo.lan.
