WITTAYU – Bangkok
They recently worked on 2 challenging private projects at the “Wittayu Complex” on Wireless Road in Bangkok. The condo flats did not offer many assets and had poor layout, bad natural lighting as well as heavy and unattractive materials. The challenge was to bring back light and lightness as well as Chi into these 2 two bedroom apartments and add flexibility within the space itself. With the use of noble materials such as wood, natural stone, silk, linen and the benefit of glass sliding partitions, the flat was metamorphoses into a variable and welcoming zen space and the Chi energy was restored. Carefully chosen accessories and designed furniture pieces were applied for the final harmonization of the project. (The smallest flat was completed in 2007, the larger unit in August 2008).
KAMALAYA - Samui
Another exciting project is the architectural extension work of the Kamalaya Resort in Koh Samui. Kamalaya is a quiet and peaceful 4 stars resort nested on the lush hills of the Island by the sea. As an Holistic retreat, it offers a full range of treatments such as cleansing and detox programs to Ayuvedic massages and therapies to Acupuncture and healing sound cures. When Jean-Jacques Ferron was asked to get involved in the project, it just was meant to be. Being an Holistic design consultant too, Mr. Ferron’s approach was totally in tuned with the new architectural needs of the resort. Reworking and redesigning the lobby, the public spaces, the restaurants and the gallery are the first steps of this large scale architectural project. Jean-Jacques is also currently involved on 2 private house architectural projects in Nagalaya and Lamai in Koh Samui as well. (Please do not hesitate to inquire about the progress of these projects).
MIST 1000 PARFUMS - Thailand

From the name, logo, look and feel to the interior architecture and display, they were able to work fast and the first store opened at the Esplanade on Ractchada in April 2007. In January 2008, the company Bel Perfumes opened their 7th location in Thailand! They are planing to open up to 15 stores within 2008 / 2009.
