The Client had approval for a commercial development on this most beautiful seaside location of Vietnam. As this compromise was then considered unsatisfactory and an underdevelopment of the site, SWA Vietnam was invited to submit a new design, that would maximize the site’s potential and satisfy City Authorities planning constraints and urban design controls.
The project reads as three elements: a 4-storey podium, two 15-storey residential and hotel suite towers of 400 units. The podium consists of luxury retails and superior amenity to tenants, local residents and tourists including the cinemas, bowling center and health clubs.
Overall form of the building is modulated by subdivisions in texture, fenestration and materials. The façade is an interplay between the solidity of stone and the tectonics of metal window framing and trim in that the full height windows play vital role to maximize ocean view for units.
