CentralPlaza Nakhon Si Thammarat is a new shopping plaza designed to create a new exciting shopping experience. The architecture is developed from the concept of shadow play. The project’s design revolves around the elements of light, colour, shade and shadow – inspired by the traditional southern shadow puppets but reinterpreted in a contemporary fashion, which can be seen in every element from architectural details to graphics and way finding. In addition, geometrical textile patterns – which can be found on local handicraft products such as Nora costume, bead work accessory and woven mat – are used throughout the development, creating a harmonious space that elaborates the overall concept.
Nakhon Si Thammarat’s natural landscapes – such as rugged hills and forests, pancake rock of Khao Phap Pha and mountain ranges – have influenced local lifestyles, including textile and architecture for more than 10 decades.
