As the art and culture scene boomed in Thailand in the mid-’90s, Bangkok’s retail giant Central Group engaged JH to create a food and beverage destination for the next generation of Thai shoppers.
Wave Department Store was a six-story department store, offering a one-stop destination for fashion and food. Designed by French interior designer Christian Liaigre, we collaborated and developed a detailed food and beverage program, including an espresso bar, a Thai restaurant, a sushi bar, an American diner, and a Cigar lounge.
Due to the Asian economic collapse in 1997, the project was never completed, but today in 2020, Wave Place Building is home to Thailand’s home improvement store, Home Pro.
