A contemporary wine bar and restaurant in Ayutthaya has just been nominated as a contender for the Building of the Year Award given by the architecture website, ArchDaily.



Completed in March, The Wine Ayutthaya is notable for its use of plywood and steel, taking inspiration from vernacular wooden houses in Thailand.

With a design by Boonserm Premthada of Bangkok Project Studio, The Wine is an extension to the Grand Chaophraya Ayutthaya Restaurant,which is famous for its river prawns and river views.

The stunning design blends with the surrounding greenery. Behind the plywood and PVC exterior is a space divided into four zones and five spiral staircases connecting to the upper floor. The Wine Ayutthaya rises nine metres high and has a built area of 215 square metres.
