MK Central Kitchen
MK Restaurants is widely known in Thailand for 27 years for serving high quality, affordable hot pot meals as well as pioneering many innovative movements.
Landscape: Landscaping plays a significant role to enhance the core concept. The area around the main office building represented a hot pot table. A large, shallow pool in an oval shape was laid out to symbolize a suki pot, signature of MK restaurant. The tiling pattern was derived from a boiling pot full of food ingredients. A pixelated image was generated to produce a series of tiling matrices, and using this series to govern the overall pattern, colorful hexagonal tiles were then meticulously arrayed on the inner side of the pool.
