Community Gathering Space drives the concept for a new Food Hall

Food Village is the food hall area for the newest open-air outlet centre– Central Village in the Bangkok suburb of Dok Mai, Thailand. The Interior design concept is seen as a gathering hall for the community. An open indoor courtyard simulates a market back in the days where people from the village and traders gather, buy and sell fresh produce and homemade meals, ranging from Thai food, Thai desserts to international food.

The tone is warm with wood finish, a slight contrast with a concrete floor to simulate the actual outdoor market. Lots of large trees are placed to give a sense of outdoor greenery feel with light and shadow cast through the leaves. Additionally, the shapes, forms and colour palette that we use are inspired from things that are commonly used when preparing meals such as Thai weave basket, and the shape and colour of Thai desserts, the colour of Thai spices and colour of natural dried food. We want to take something so ordinary and elevated them to pattern, form and colour that carry throughout the food hall.

Thai elements from architecture and pattern are integrated as the decoration and accent details to enrich the sense of Thai fresh market. For example, a large customised floor tile at the centre of the courtyard accentuated the beautiful Thai handcrafted weave, food island pattern inspired from Thai roof tiles and food cart structure inspired from Thai architecture, Sala Thai.
