Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam
Design: Tony Owen NDM Architects
Tony Owen NDM’s design has been selected as the winner of the design competition for the new Office Building for the Lac Trung software city in Ho Chi Minh City, in Vietnam.
This project is for a high tech office development in district 12 of Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam for the VECL group. The 12 story building will contain 25,000m2 of office space., the ground floor contains gardens and a restaurant. There is also a business club, conference centre, gym and pool on the top floor.
The building has been designed to maximise natural ventillation and air circulation. A glass void shaft is located at each end of every floor. This void contains a green skygarden every third level. This wintergarden provides an outlook for the internal users at each end. These areas also have shared break out rooms for each level. These spaces contain meetiong rooms or common areas. The voids are surrounded by glass louvres to allow natural ventialltion to flow to the sky gardens and the communal spaces.
The facades are articulated with a solar screen. The screening consists of perforated aliuminium panels. These panels allow for the maximum transition of natural light, but provide shading from solar heat gain and maximise views.
