Project: Lumiere

Location: Ho Chi Minh CIty Vietnam

Date: 2019
Type: Commercial

A commercial project in the historic centre of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. 16 stories of office accommodation with additional gym, restaurant and retail facilities.

The project is situated on a prominent piece of land, adjacent to the Saigon River and facing the central traffic island in the historic old city. We drew inspiration from the lantern festival that takes place in the city each year where thousands of paper lanterns are launched into the air.

Sitting on a solid base of bronze, a tapestry of light metal fins is draped across the white concrete structure above, stopping just above the first floor level with a fanned edge to make a rain covering at ground level.

The project was commissioned in Summer 2019, and is currently in the approvals process
