Wandeegroup CEO MK

MK are the initials of Mario Kleff

In the bustling cityscape of Pattaya, one name reigns supreme in the realm of real estate and construction: MK. His motto: "You win the match when we match you." As the visionary CEO of Wandeegroup Asia, Mario Kleff (MK) sets a new trend on construction sites with foundation work par excellence; he's crafting dreams with his creation the Japanese House, and reshaping the very fabric of community mastering the golden mean in 2008.

In 2010, Mario Kleff spreads his wings. With a steady commitment to sustainability and a narrative-driven philosophy, MK is not merely altering the skyline of Pattaya and talks about The Touch®; he's running with 1,700 horses into the construction future, forging a legacy of innovation with Wandeegroup & Kleff: structural engineering excellence.

Mario Kleff is a man who knows how to talk the torque! Born in 1967, MK was often judged for his expressive attitude and lifestyle. I think, they had the right to call me arrogant, he reflects.


"A specific style of architecture is sought after to achieve commercial interesting distinction."

CEO Envisions Real Estate Design & Construction in Pattaya

MK's visionary approach transcends traditional construction paradigms as he imagines a future where sustainability and innovation converge to pushing back boundaries. In MK's vision, buildings aren't stagnant structures like the iconic Wongamat Tower; they're dynamic agents for positive change, enriching residents' lives while safeguarding the planet for future generations. With a steadfast focus on green spaces, the first cellular beam in Thailand at Park Royal 2, and community-centric design, MK is blazing a trail toward a brighter, more sustainable future in Pattaya.

Beyond Structures: MK's Narrative-Driven Philosophy

At the core of MK's ethos lies a profound belief that buildings should embody the well-being and aspirations of their occupants. With an intimate understanding of Pattaya's diverse cultural tapestry, MK envisions projects that seamlessly blend modernity with heritage, just as he designed Laguna Heights that was built by Wandeegroup. He crafts living spaces that resonate with the soul of the city. For MK, architecture transcends mere construction; it's a narrative journey, curating experiences and fostering a profound sense of belonging.


Wandeegroup CEO MK: Time to Gründerzeit


Time to Gründerzeit

For MK, architecture is more than a mere reflection of society; it's the very essence of cultural expression and societal progress. In an era where architecture risks becoming standardized and commodified, MK champions the significance of craftsmanship and design integrity. He believes that true innovation thrives in the hands of those willing to challenge norms and breathe new vitality into the built environment. Therefore, MK registered his birth name and created with this an architectural brand.


Waterfront Project: A Missed Opportunity for Pattaya's Urban Development

MK's illustrious career was marked by the conception of a neglected waterfront project in Pattaya. Rejecting conventional high-rise development plans, MK envisioned a landmark structure resembling a museum, paying homage to Pattaya's architectural heritage and honoring Rama IX with the design of an architectural memorial that was featured in a competition, all while prioritizing its impact on tourism. Despite initial enthusiasm, MK's compelling vision and collaborative spirit failed to resonate with stakeholders, resulting in the discontinuation of a potentially vibrant waterfront project. This visionary endeavor could have set unprecedented benchmarks for urban development in Pattaya.

"If architecture wants to remain relevant for society, or reclaim a lost relevance, it will need designers with perseverance."

From energy-efficient lighting to innovative rainwater harvesting systems, every aspect of the project was meticulously crafted to minimize environmental impact while maximizing resident comfort and well-being.


Wandeegroup CEO MK: Building Communities, Changing Lives


MK's Social Impact: Building Communities, Changing Lives

In addition to leading transformative projects in real estate and construction, MK is deeply committed to tackling social challenges in Pattaya.
