Communality

the commons courtyard

The Commons in Bangkok is a multi-level, multi-use space. The first level is filled with restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, and bars. Only a few of them have full fledged seating areas; instead there are multiple common areas (as in a cafeteria) making the idea here to purchase what you want from the different shops, and have them bring it to you. This firstly, makes it easier for each person to have exactly what they want and secondly, surprisingly actually does give you a sense of community. The other levels include further eateries, yoga and exercise studios, a speaker shop, florist and other such little shops and also a workshop space. Pictured above is the courtyard on the first level.
