The Sonne Srinakarin-Bangna Takes Luxury Duplex Living To A New Level
A home doesn’t just cater to its occupants; it is also a mirror of their lifestyle aspirations. Recognising the evolution of urban families and their need for multi-generational co-living spaces, AP Thailand’s latest flagship development, The Sonne Srinakarin-Bangna, comprises beautiful luxury duplex homes featuring classic architecture in a contemporary context. The epitome of sophisticated design, the project’s units also go beyond the aesthetics to ensure that every home offers interior spaces that are not only eminently comfortable but also able to support the various functions and domestic needs of family members ranging from newborn babies to senior citizens in their golden years.
AP Thailand, a leader in the creation of innovative housing for urbanites, has envisioned The Sonne Srinakarin-Bangna as a three-storey luxury duplex home. What sets it apart is its combination of classic architecture and a new format for contemporary spaces that will appeal to the whole family. Incorporating a multi-facade design with triple-layer ventilation, the residences all have different identities that make them reminiscent of single detached homes, thereby offering extraordinary space aesthetics that mirror the modernity and functionality of a contemporary townhouse.
A healthy living environment is a top priority at The Sonne Srinakarin-Bangna, hence the development is oriented to take advantage of prevailing breezes and sunlight. Security and peace of mind for the whole family are also paramount, which is why the project adopts futuristic KATSAN home security technology that acts as a personal guardian by screening visitors and watching over the development 24/7 all year round.
A flagship for the luxury duplex home market, The Sonne Srinakarin-Bangna offers exclusivity with just 56 residences available. Each boasts 13.56 metres of frontage, four bedrooms, four bathrooms, two multi-function rooms, a reception area, a dining room, a kitchen, a family living room and parking for two vehicles. The Type A residence highlights the combination of modernity with patterns of classic architecture. Bedroom windows are designed for expansive views with corner glass panes for added space. Privacy is maintained, however, with a skylight for the stair halls on the second and third floors. Type B units draw on the charm of luxurious simplicity with fretted patterns in dark tones against beige panels. Space is enhanced with outside-in views and striking triple vertical glass panes. Type C residences incorporate exquisitely fretted windows overlooking a small garden to create an outdoor family living room. Type D homes also feature wide corner glass panes in the bedrooms to create extra space and light.
Under a universal design concept, The Sonne is built for high quality living for multi-generational families with a focus on the functionality of interior spaces. Units offer as many as three entrances on the first floor: the main entrance and two ramp entrances leading straight to private bedrooms. At 1.38 metres wide, these are ideal for the elderly and those requiring wheelchair access.
The units also have personal garden views and bathrooms with built-in safety features to cater to the aged and infirm. In fact, the entire first-floor level is a step-free environment designed for the safety and convenience of young and old alike. The main hall of the residence, from the reception area through to the dining and pantry areas, has been created to encourage family interaction. The use of large building-wide windows adds to the sense of space and sophistication, catching an abundance of natural light and creating changing ambiences throughout the day.
The second floor is centred on the private living room with fully open floor spaces to support a wide range of activities and glass-paned doors accessing the pocket garden terrace. Here too is the master bedroom with a walk-in closet and his-and-her en suite bathroom with private garden views. The third floor offers two large bedrooms, each with a walk-in closet and a built-in bathroom together with corner glass to catch natural light and give views over the surrounding greenery.
In terms of the amenities, they are designed to encourage and facilitate joint activities in common areas so as to support the development of learning and play among the different generations. The layout of the clubhouse and its facilities are perfect for urban family use. For example, the building wraps around a large outdoor swimming pool, which adds a luxurious angle to the location but also gives it extra privacy. In fact, there are swimming pools for three generations of residents with an additional kids’ pool and an enervating jacuzzi pool for seniors. Other common facilities include The White Lounge, which can cater to a full range of functions and social gatherings, and a fitness centre complete with various cardio and weight exercise equipment.
Built on a 12-rai plot of land close to the expansive greenery of Suan Luang Rama IX Park, The Sonne Srinakarin-Bangna also incorporates a number of green areas that all generations of the family can enjoy together. These spots are imbued with different functional aspects—a quiet area in which residents can sit, relax and play chess, a gravelled playground that can be transformed into a petanque court, and simple grassed spaces where members of the family can kick off their shoes, go barefoot and reconnect with nature.
Elsewhere in the development different materials are used to surface walkways—from vulcanised rubber ideal for seniors and grandchildren to take a gentle stroll together to gravel paths more suited to vigorous exercise such as jogging and cycling.
While The Sonne Srinakarin-Bangna has been designed as an enclave for private family living, it occupies a great location in the high-potential Srinakarin-Bangna area with its many schools, shopping centres, banks and hospitals. It also offers access to major arteries into downtown Bangkok such as the Srinakarin, Bangna-Trad and On-nut Roads and is conveniently located for the MRT Yellow Line (Ladprao-Samrong) and close to the main route to Suvarnabhumi Airport and the Eastern Economic Corridor.
Offering peace, privacy and convenience, this flagship luxury duplex residential development by AP Thailand is an urban oasis that takes the comforts of multi-generational family living to new heights. Prices start from 12-15 million baht.
