KNOCK Kitchen & Kicks is a renovation project of a 4-story shop house in the trendy Thonglor area of Bangkok, turned by Onion into a bistro & bar with a select sneaker retail shop. A set of stairs was designed next to the entry, occupying the first bay or 4 meters out of 23 meters of the shop house’s depth. The stairs tucked the service area away from sight and led Knock’s customers, right away, from the street level to the bistro on the second floor and later on to the retail space on the third floor. In terms of visual effects, the architects created the continuity between the steps and the diagonal linear patterns on the walls that were made of cement boards painted in black and white.
