Symbiosis with Nature

The Forestias is one of the largest property development projects in Thailand. The highlight of the project is a 48,000 sqm of urban forest at the center of The Forestias, connecting all developments within the site to create a healthier and happier living for all residents. International standards of SITES, WELL, and LEED were implemented.

The Forest Pavilion, located in The Forestias, currently functions as the sales gallery, and will be converted into The Forestias Ecosystem Learning Center and be a hub of residence society. It is also an entrance gateway to the broad forest zone of The Forestias, providing a prototype of living with nature.

Symbiosis with Nature

The landscape concept ‘Symbiosis with Nature’ embraces three objectives: planting the future of symbiosis with nature, immersing the wilderness, and balancing human activities and the growth of urban forest – by transforming rigid form of pavilion into the natural freeform of central forest, maximize privacy for all users and residents, provide an authentic experience of living in the forest.

Symbiosis with Nature

At the Forest Pavilion, which is intended to be a testing lab for symbiosis with nature, users can experience nature in an urbanized form. A delightful walkway and a skywalk are designed to attract people to go outdoors and enjoy the natural environment. The scale of natural environment has been extended beyond any typical urban environment. By creating Miyawaki Eco Forest, this dynamic forest-like landscape creates biodiversity that will grow and evolve along with the current and future generations. Residents will enjoy a refreshing living experience with nature among the urban fabric, which integrates sustainable design with high-quality modern lifestyle.
