Mario Kleff, 28 April, 2022

The Wong Amat Tower is a 38 storey high-rise building with 361 residential units. Its location is on Wong Amat Beach in Pattaya. The structure was designed in 2009 by architect Mario Kleff. The developer is Heights Holdings Co LTD with the project owner Laguna Long Beach Height Two Co LTD. Construction began in 2011 and was completed in 2015. A 23 meter high showroom was built by Wandeegroup (Thailand) Co LTD in the same year. Mario Kleff is the designer and architect.

The first draft for the Wong Amat Tower is based on a steel frame structure and the cellular beam. The design was later converted into a reinforced concrete structure with new material properties and post-tensioned concrete. The design and construction technology of the the Wong Amat Tower enabled large glass panes with room-high glass, which makes the building appear transparent.

A strong team fallen apart — Haim Bar-David and Mario Kleff

State-of-the-art technology made modern construction possible. The original design of the Wong Amat Tower included the use of cellular beam and composite structure. This construction technology enabled other key features such as a 13 meter high lobby with an elevator through an aquarium. For more living space, fewer structural columns were required throughout the building.

The previously planned steel frame was later redesigned and replaced by reinforced concrete columns and post-tensioned concrete slabs. The completed Wong Amat Tower is concrete framed structure.Architect Mario Kleff owns the copyrights to the Wong Amat Tower designs, but granted Heights Holdings Co Ltd approval for design changes later in 2011.

At the beginning Mario Kleff was not only the architect, but also the main contractor with his Wandeegroup (Thailand) Co Ltd. Disagreements for the construction process of the Wong Amat Towers and discrepancies on other construction sites such as Park Royal series, Club Royal residential complex and Laguna Heights led to a dispute, so CEO Haim Bar-David and architect Mario Kleff has terminated the construction contract.

The Wong Amat Tower also called Wongamat Tower was initially named W-Tower. The temporary construction stop of the Wong Amat Tower lead to a number of events between Haim Bar-David and Mario Kleff.

• All Heights Holdings real estate developments saw interior and system changes that were not planned at the beginning when the architect Mario Kleff has created the projects
• All Heights Holdings publications have been removed or changed without Mario Kleff been mentioned as the designer, architect and copyright holder
• Mario Kleff finished his working relationship with Haim Bar-David. The Laguna Bay series was the last project designed by the architect Mario Kleff for Heights Holdings
• Mario Kleff's reputation as an architect faded

The Wong Amat Tower is the first completed high-rise building designed by Mario Kleff.
