Jorakay Corporation, the creator of the Crocodile brand, is one of Thailand’s leading manufacturers of cement, tile adhesive and grout. The new headquarters, located on Krungthep Kreetha Road in Bangkok, consists of three office buildings, research labs and a recreation building complete with badminton courts, a fitness center and a cafeteria.

 

The three main office buildings are linked together with a dynamic perforated double skin façade, designed to subtly resemble the form of a crocodile, an animal which captivates the owner’s interests and has been the Jorakay Corporation’s logo since the company was founded.

 

Alternating solid and perforated bands of aluminum cladding, coupled with patterned perforations at the window areas, creates a smooth transition between solid and void along the ridge that dynamically runs the length of the façade.

 

The main core of each office building is located on the west-facing façade to minimize heat retention while creating a common corridor that connect the three office spaces internally. A large recreational building, which houses the badminton court, was designed to be subtle in tone and character. Though a stand-alone structure, it also complements the feature office buildings in the front.


A perimeter wall encircles the site and morphs into a 12-meter tall signage pylon at the entrance, offering a visual connection with the main office façade and forming a complete “crocodile”
