Reviving a Landmark in the Heart of Bangkok

Built in 1889 during the reign of King Rama V, The House's neo-classical structure originally housed wealthy businessman Luang Sathorn Rajayutka, who created Sathorn Canal. The home was later was passed down to his descendents. In the early 1920s, the site was converted into the majestic Hotel Royal. Later, from 1948 to 1999, the building served as the Russian Embassy.

Recognizing the immense historic value of the house, the development team worked closely with Thailand's Fine Arts Department to carefully restore the home to its former glory, as part of the conversion to The House on Sathorn. Major renovations were conducted on the four buildings and large courtyard, keeping the original main structure intact. Meanwhile, inside, the original color palette, intricate wooden staircases and even the Sathorn Rajayutka family's personalized fresco motifs have all been meticulously restored by the Fine Arts Department. The compelling juxtaposition of contemporary components and new elements reflect the boundless creativity of renowned design firm AvroKO of New York.

Chef Fatih Tutak

Originally hailing from Istanbul, Turkey, Director of Culinary Fatih Tutak oversees all food and drink operations at The House on Sathorn. The chef's distinctive menus are inspired by his extensive travels in Asia and beyond. Constantly seeking new recipes and preparation methods, Chef Fatih communicates with guests through the mediums of flavor, texture and color – and more than a dash of good humor.

"My culinary interest was inspired at a young age by my mother's home cooking, which developed into a passion and fuelled my dream of becoming a chef," explains Chef Fatih. "Combining the finest seasonal ingredients from Asia, each dish also reflect my love of travel and delight in the discovery of new things. This 'fun dining' concept perfectly balances technique, culinary sensibility and a sense of lightheartedness, which is well aligned with the house's narrative."

Chef Fatih comes to The House on Sathorn after creating a unique dining experience at The Bellbrook Hong Kong, recognized by the Hong Kong-Macau Michelin Guide 2015. Other stints include the world-renowned restaurant NOMA in Copenhagen and 3 Michelin-starred Nihonryori Ryugin in Tokyo. He also served as the Executive Sous Chef at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, among other celebrated establishments. Recently, his greatest accomplishment is having his signature restaurant, The Dining Room being listed as one of Asia's 50 Best Restaurants 2017, sponsored by S. Pellegrino & Acqua Panna.
