IDEO Morph 38 designed by the practice of Somdoon Architects is a project consisting of two towers which are interconnected through an envelope wrapping around the 32 floor rear tower called Ashton and the 10 floor duplex front tower called Skyle.

The project is located on Sukhumvit 38 in Phra Khanong, Khong Toei, Bangkok 10110, Thailand in a region away from the high traffic area and in a low-rise residential area. The separation of the construction into two towers was preferred due to the way this would maximize the plot ratio so that each building would target different potential tenants.

The exterior façade was made through a combination of precast concrete panels with expanded meshes and planters and the west side and east side were designed to become green walls in accordance with the sun’s orientation. One wall is 65 meters tall while the other one reaches 130 meters.

The Skyle duplex tower is designed for singles or young couples while the Ashton tower offers spaces for families with apartments of various sizes.
