Review: Monument Thong Lo Condominium, Bangkok
Located in the heart of Sukhumvit 55 in Bangkok, The Monument Thong Lo is Sansiri’s latest high-rise luxury development.
Located in the heart of Sukhumvit 55 in Bangkok, The Monument Thong Lo is Sansiri’s latest high-rise luxury development. The 45-storey residence will be an architectural masterpiece designed by architecture firm Quintrix. They are known internationally for their Al Sharq Tower and Al Hamra Firdous Tower.
A new design team was tasked with creating the interior for the project. ITH interior make their mark on the project from the moment residents walk in the door. Marble will fill the space, giving a feeling of grandeur and pillars will be fitted with handpicked premium leather. The leather theme continues over to the furniture where it is combined with petrified wood.
A hallmark of the interior design and a unique space within the building is the mail room. Walking in to get your mail, one might completely forget about the bills waiting behind the stylish wood and premium leather cabinets. The brass handles hark back to yesteryears in this all inviting room.
When it comes time to head up to your apartment, private lifts whisk you skyward to your floor. Three different types of apartments are available, with no more than four units located on each storey. This has allowed for each unit to have at least one corner of the building and a 180-degree view of the city. A two bedroom with three bathrooms makes up the smaller units at 1,337 sq. ft., while the larger unit is a three bedroom, four-bathroom unit with 2,715 sq. ft. There are also penthouses available – more on that below.
All apartments will come equipped with Gessi products as bathroom furnishings. Sticking with the stylish overall feel of the residences, Rettangolo faucets will feature prominently throughout. It doesn’t stop there, marble is laid from the bathrooms through to the living room, creating a cool environment and adding to the high quality of materials used.
When you think of penthouse living, The Monument’s penthouse is exactly what one thinks of. It is big! Ranging up to 7,126 sq. ft. and featuring almost 16 and a half feet ceilings in the living rooms. One is so large in fact, that it has its own private swimming pool. There are not many sky high palaces in Bangkok with their own private outdoor pool to splash around in. For those on the lower levels, don’t feel left out as there’s a 92-foot swimming pool sculpted out of aluminum. A swimmers dream on the second floor.
Sansiri has done a great job to ensure there’s plenty of green outdoor space for an urban project. Working with landscape designer, Tectonix, two gardens have been created. One will measure 3,444 sq. ft. at the front and the second will measure 6,458 sq. ft. at the rear. This layout really gives a homely feel. Uniquely, five ancient trees will be kept on the project. They’ve been in Thong Lo for generations and add to the character of the gardens.
The Monument wouldn’t be complete without an array of facilities for its residents. There’s a nearly 10,764 sq. ft. recreational garden with a children’s playground, fitness center, large swimming pool and multipurpose area. Residents also have access to a 24-hour butler service, numerous parking spaces, security and 1-year with Quintessentially Lifestyle concierge service.
With everything at its doorstep, including Thong Lo BTS Station and a number of luxury shops and restaurants, residents of The Monument get to enjoy the very best of Bangkok.
