HANOI | Projects & Construction

Since Hanoi, the capital city of Vietnam, has proposed a major expansion plan in 2008, I have decided to create a development thread about the city.

To start this thread off, here is one development under construction in hanoi: the Keangnam Hanoi Landmark Tower.

What is the current status of this project? Looks very nice.

Does it look nice with the surroundings also? Does it fit aesthetically into the city?

THE LOTUS
Westlake/ Ho Tay Lotus Pond - Upper Tay Ho

status: under planning
use: residential

Floors: 65
Client: Doan Ket Village Co. Ltd. (Vietnam)
Architect: Thinkscape Team3 (Malaysia)











source: The Edge

The competition

The contest was organised by Doan Ket Village Co Ltd, a subsidiary of a local bank. The competition brief was “very brief”, says Chew. It merely gave the participants a free reign on the design concept. The main criterion is that the structure should be a luxury serviced apartment of at least 65 storeys. Participants came from over the world including from Australia, Hong Kong and France.

The outcome could have been different as the team nearly didn’t participate. “We declined in the beginning because we were only given four weeks to submit a concept,” says Chew. The duration of the competition was six weeks and this meant that the other participants had a good two-week head start. “We didn’t think we had the time to come up with something good in that time frame,” adds Jong. However, they soon changed their minds.


The inspiration

The idea for The Lotus came about when Chew visited the proposed site where the tower would be built. He noticed that it was surrounded by lotus farms. He did some research and found that the lotus has huge cultural significance for Vietnam.

“The lotus is able to survive in murky, dirty water. I told John [Jong] that this represented the Vietnamese people, who went through years of domination, colonisation and struggle and have come through it all and thrived,” says Chew. So significant is the plant that it is Vietnam’s national flower.

Once Chew started the ball rolling, ideas began to flow and in 1 weeks, the team had its design concept ready for the competition. The members followed up with a documentary-style video presentation and also put their model of The Lotus in chrome to make it look like a winning trophy. These caught the eye of the judges and ultimately won them the award.

But the competition didn’t stop there. The Vietnamese government got wind of Thinkscape Team3’s design and decided that it wanted The Lotus to become a visible landmark for Hanoi. Hence, the Vietnamese government is seeking a new site for the building. Once the site is confirmed, expected to be before year-end, the team will move ahead with the planning and construction. In the meantime, as the architects wait for the final decision, they will use the free time to refine their original design.


The Lotus

In the presentation, the design depicts a lotus bud and two hands pressed together, with the stalk of the lotus plant held between the palms. This symmetrical design reflects the philosophy of balance and harmony derived from Buddha’s teaching on practising moderation.

The exterior skin of the building is covered by a fluid metal casing consisting of metal shutters hiding the individual units. The shutters will open and shut according to the needs of the residents during the course of the day. This is to represent the actions of the lotus flower that will open in the day and close at night.

Also, the living spaces start from 12 storeys onward as Chew and Jong believe that a sense of luxury comes from a higher level. The proposed landscape at the ground level has organic fixtures that represent lotus leaves in water.

When finally built, The Lotus will cover about 914,932 sq ft of prime real estate. It will contain 186 of 1, 2 and 3-bedroom units; 24 duplex units; five penthouses and parking bays for 410 vehicles.

The Hanoi City Complex hasn't even finished the basement. They just changed the investor, so constructionwith new investor couldnt start yet. I think they will resume work wholly in the coming up weeks. At least one storey should be finished untill nect year. The tower is placed with the front site to the busy square. It will enhance the the square and makes the building appear eye-catching on the same time.

The Hanoi Landmark Tower is progressing very well. In the following there is an update. The towers fit good to the environment in my opinion. As you can see at one of their plans, the towers not placed randomely. I think they have special relations to the environment in term of angles.

DK2

Westlake, Tay Ho District, Hanoi

3rd prize @ competition

floors: 65
use: service apartment

Architect: ICE – Ideas for Contemporary Environments

simply amazing unit concept!

Quote:
The exterior design of the high rises is an extrapolation of the spatial qualities of the interior and maintains the integrity of the configuration. The sky gardens/courtyards will be a visible exterior feature, highlighting the provision of green, airy private space within each apartment.

There is a distinct Hanoi vernacular style of living where a deep plan of two or more stories is punctuated by a light well or courtyard. This creates a comfortable open section full of light and free-flowing air but shielded from the heat of the direct sun. The courtyard usually doubles as an interior garden as well, bringing a green private space to the homes around which the family gathers.

The units transform the Hanoi court into a high rise typology, producing a maximum of natural (cross) ventilation, shading of outdoor as well as indoor spaces in order to suit the tropical climatic context. The project uses duplex and split level, which evolve around deep terraces and balconies of 2 floors. These outdoor elements are mainly shaded by the facade walls and act as a semi outdoor buffer to prevent heat to enter the units.
