Stu/D/O Architects is a young Bangkok-based architectural design studio whose practice traverses the fields of architecture, urbanism and sustainable design. Grounded in the belief that architecture should consider all layers of physical and cultural distinctness in each site, the office does not adopt a fixed design process, but instead focus on a strong studio culture that pool together fresh ideas to result in new design approaches and possibilities of creating space. Founded under the desire to create architecture that sustains itself and the community along with it, Stu/D/O’s work reflects the importance of the human experience within the creation, and complexities of constructed environments.
Having graduated in Architecture Design from Chulalongkorn University, the two co-founders Chanasit Cholasuek (D) and Apichart Srirojanapinyo (O) both worked at Architects 49 Limited before pursuing their graduate studies in AA (Architectural Association School of Architecture; Sustainable Design) and MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Architecture and Urbanism) respectively. In 2010, they established Stu/D/O Architects under the belief that a collaborative working environment lead to unrestrictive design thinking that allows for the freedom to explore new possibilities of architecture.
With its team of passionate architects, designers and engineers, Stu/D/O has designed and is currently involved in both local and international projects across an array of design typologies. These include a wide range of design projects, from small exhibition designs, private residences to large commercial buildings.
Since its establishment, Stu/D/O has received various awards and international recognition for their architectural work, earning their reputation as one of Thailand’s notable architecture design offices. Most recently, Stu/D/O’s projects received awards from World Architecture Festival (WAF) for two consecutive years: InterCrop Headquarter in the 2018 Office Building Category and Naiipa Art Complex in the 2017 Mixed Used Category. In addition, Naiipa was selected for the 2017 Honorable Mention from The Arcasia Awards for Architecture, the 2016 Citation Award from the Association of Siamese Architects (ASA), along with the 2015 Building of the Year by Wallpaper* Magazine.
