Collaborating with SKETCHBUK, our cool graphic designer friend who turned into glass gilding guru, Supermachine would like to give a new flavour to our 20 year old studio’s door. Our brief to him was to get the door the express our active lifestyle and passion both at work and not. He came back with cool graphic design for a central piece and illustrations on 8 of the smaller panels. We can’t wait to get the new glasses installed into the door!!!
Welcome to Supermachine Studio’s official blog. (***Don’t look for official Supermachine Studio’s website. It does not exist) Sorry for not updating the blog for a while, the COVID situation brought us a strange latency, which should not be an excuse. We are slowly bringing this blog back to LIVE. Please stay tune.
The content in this blog is all related to the projects we are involved. They are published and updated according to what we are doing at that moment of time (pre-tagged with the year that project starts).

Design Team: Pitupong Chaowakul with Theerayut Somtua, Sujinda Khawkham and Krit Parephan
Big Wing is Honda’s space for big bike line, a popular product among enthusiast segment. In the last years, it has been expanding around Thailand’s provinces that have demand. Pitsanulok is one of the cities embracing the big bike culture. We were asked to design a compact showroom + service facility for the brand. Taking the “Black Swan” theme, we propose to divide the building facade into smaller black planes composing a more dynamic geometry. The mass is tilted up creating a big opening for a large motobike display. The adjacent tower is angularly cut open to create entrance for visitors. The showroom occupies 40 percent of the building whereby the rest is a motobike service facility that span to the back end of the plot.
Today, our team visited the construction site of Speck Hostel. It has been a while our lovely client building his hotel due to many unforeseeable factors. However it is more promising than ever that our project is reaching the finish line. It could take a few more months till SPECK is in full operation we think.
Supermachine studio can design a house too!!!! It might have been a wrong perception that we don’t design residential project. Looking back at the works in our 10 year portfolio, there is only one villa completed among big array of public space projects. We are still in love with great aspects of living diversities.
It is our 2nd time this year to get involve with HIP-HOP. Now we have already believe that it is a big HIT here in Thailand. We are in charge of designing all big and small elements in the festival including main stage, mini stage, street dance space, landmark and showcase spaces. It is a mini project that we take a chance to catch up with today’s teen culture that sometimes we have to admit that it is not very easy.
It was the same time when our director about the turn his small house in Bangkok into a garage, we were approached by a client, who has crazy lifestyle, to design pretty much of the same program but in a much crazier degree.
The 300 SQ.M. living garage is a house for our client’s hobbies. It should accommodate spaces for a collection of his motorbikes and exotic cars as well as a small private recording studio and some corners to party with his friends. And all should be done in relatively low budget.
Our design of the garage is combination of simple geometries criss-crossing on each other and covered by a single simplistic tilt roof. The overlapping masses create different kind of open and semi open space in the project, ie; a pool, a party balcony or cliff climbing space. The 2 main high-light spaces are his motorbilke and car garage where we propose a large glass doors and aDark Knight style, fully illuminated ceiling. On second floor are space for a record room and a naturally ventilated party balcony.
