Practice Ideology

OPENBOX Architects (OPNBX) has been founded in 2004 by NUI Ratiwat Suwannatrai and PRANG Wannaporn Suwanntrai, architect and landscape architect. The design studio has been formed, based on the core belief that architecture and landscape should be designed and perceived as one. For the past 16 years, OPENBOX has been involved in numerous projects of various types, that illustrate the importance of unified concept, boldness and harmony between architectures and their surroundings.

He is one of a few Architect in Thailand who has acquired Asean Architect’s License. Only a few Certified and Experienced Architects in Asean country would receive the License.

OPENBOX Studio has currently expanded our service scope to cover architecture, landscape and interior to emphasize the power of unified design concept. Boundaries between each aspect blur into one another, allowing us to create unique Identity Design for our recent projects.
