Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Situated 10 kilometers from the city center, the twin elliptical Bach Binh Towers reach a height of 20 floors that will serve as a landmark and gateway in the southwest portion of Ho Chi Minh City. The towers are comprised of 4 floors of office and retail with an amenities deck located on the 5th floor for optimal viewing of the low rise surrounding context. Floors 6‐20 contain over 330 apartment units capped with 12 penthouses on the top floor. The simple forms are clad in glass, precast concrete, and metal panels. Linked with sky gardens, metal louvers for sun control, and optimal wind and solar orientation the towers seek to minimize their use of resources and reach a high level of sustainability.
