Description

Chris Bosse was design architect on this project whilst Associate Architect at PTW - along with Mark Butler and John Bilmon.

The team won the competition with a design based on functional planning combined with a curvilinear facade language for a group of towers set in a lush garden.

While the project was later executed by various architects and builder Coteccons, Bosse's original competition drawings and artist renderings have been executed in astonishing accuracy.

The residential development comprises six towers of varying heights. Stage one, with three towers, is completed. The complex comprises 927 luxurious one, two and three bedroom apartments set in a lush resort-style 17,500m2 landscape close to the CBD.

The curvilinear facade of the ‘wave’ towers translates a natural feature into a contemporary built form creating a striking visual identity. Using nature’s structural systems achieves good passive solar orientation, maximising views, sun shading and integration of landscaping. Rendered masonry facades are accentuated by vertically and horizontally undulating façades which provide both privacy and protection against solar radiation. Horizontal bands of glazing offer panoramic views across the city.

The majority of the site is dedicated to landscaping and recreational facilities, including shopping facilities, kindergarten and clinic. Parking spaces are located beneath the undulating parkland to maximise the available outdoor space.

The towers are considered state of the art design and construction in Vietnam. They are popular because of their international quality, aesthetics and amenities, and respect for Vietnamese culture.
