The interior designer of New York's most expensive condominium building, Danish-born Thomas Juul-Hansen, is debuting his first project in Thailand with the launch on Friday of Scope Langsuan residential condominium.

Scope Langsuan is situated on the most expensive piece of freehold land transacted in Thailand in 2018, at Bt3.1 million per square wah. Sample residences are slated to open for viewing on July 17, 2019, at the Langsuan Road site. Thomas Juul-Hansen is the designer of the interiors of New York’s One57, nicknamed “The Billionaire Building”. One57 held the record for the most expensive home ever sold in the city until January 2019 with the sale of a Bt3.2 billion (US$100.5 million) residence, and it was also the tallest residential building in New York City when it opened in 2014. Long-time property development innovator Yongyutt Chaipromprasith and Chief Executive Officer of the development company Scope, said: “We’re a disruptive developer, focusing exclusively on designing and building top, international standard premium homes and we cater to a new generation who seek homes where the design and build quality match the very best available in New York or London. So, we’ve teamed up with the best partners in the world. “Scope Langsuan is our reference project. It combines international premium standards and excellent design, with one of Bangkok’s best locations on super-prime Langsuan Road. Scope Langsuan has 158 residences and one commercial estate, rises 34 floors, is only 170 metres from Chidlom BTS station, and has a project value of over Bt7.8 billion.” Yongyutt said that the company has invested the highest design fees, ever, for a Bangkok condominium of this size because “we know that supreme comfort, functionality, convenience, and good taste in a residence have to be ‘designed in’ from the beginning and into every aspect of the home, and down to the smallest detail. And with great design and build quality, there will always follow strong, long-term property value appreciation.” He added: “We have also joined hands with one of the world’s most admired architectural design firms, KPF (Kohn Pedersen Fox) for the exclusive consult of architectural design of Scope Langsuan. Many of their buildings around the world have become city landmarks and they will help make Scope Langsuan a stand-out residential building in Bangkok.” New York-based KPF designed Shanghai’s iconic World Financial Centre, the International Commerce Centre that dominates Hong Kong’s skyline as its tallest and most extraordinary skyscraper, South Korea’s tallest building, the 123-floor Lotte World Tower, as well as New York’s Hudson Yards, which is the largest private real estate development in the Un
