PATOM ORGANIC LIVING BANGKOK
If you love greenery, organic food and beauty products then you have to add a visit to Patom Organic Living on your itinerary.
If you’re going to Bangkok please add Thonglor to your list of areas to explore. It’s still a huge area, but you will find the nicest independent addresses there. Like Volve Hotel, Hands and Heart and Pacamara Coffee Roasters. Patom Organic Living is also a great addition. At first I thought I was lost trying to find it, but then I’ve reached the beautiful architectural property.
The story goes all the way back to 1964 when the grandparents of the owners of Patom bought a piece of land in the Nakorn Pathom province (just an hour drive from Bangkok). The land was developed into a renowned tourist destination (Sampran Riverside Eco Resort). Across the river is their organic farm where they grow herbs, fruits and vegetables. Together they’ve worked with organic farmers to make organic body care products and traditional Thai delicacies.
Wood-framed glass cube
The idea of Patom Organic Living is to sell their food and body care products in a beautiful environment in the city. They’ve worked with NITAPROW architects for the design of the wood-framed glass cube in the middle of the green garden. They worked with glass to bring the outside greenery in and it feels like you’re surrounded by nature. There’s an inside shop, cafe and they organize Farmer’s Markets in the garden.
