Launched at the onset of 2019 in Asia, Canvas is a new “lifestyle brand” encompassing hotel and residential projects, membership programmes and cultural initiatives like never experienced before. With three flagships planned so far for Bangkok, Hua Hin and Bali, Canvas is dedicated to showcasing and fostering each hub’s unique charms and local spirit through these three components.

What’s most genuine about this new development concept is its focus on building a meaningful bond with its residents and creating life-long value for them—which is why the hospitality and real estate development aspect of the company, Canvas Place, is indispensably backed by a rewarding membership programme (Canvas Belong) and integrative platform for the exchange of creative ideas, Blank Canvas.


“Canvas seeks to inspire and nurture connections between people and cultures. Through the different components of Canvas, we are weaving together the story of creative ideas, cultural diversity and originality.”

- Carl Gouw, founder
