A vertical highrise village with apartments and offices connected by green bridges and with views to the Hanoi Lotus Building which sits in a 19ha lake located near one of Hanoi’s main arterial roads connecting to Noi Bai Airport.
LAVA’s design for Van Phu Towers, a new tri-tower mixed-use project currently under construction, takes it inspiration from the UNESCO heritage-listed BảN GiốC Waterfall. It creates a unique destination by blending features of local nature with the lifestyle of the future.
The concept is inspired by the famous waterfall, which is surrounded by groups of karst peaks and where water rushes down three tiers and is separated into three falls by rocks and trees.
Referencing the three tiers of the falls, the three towers are connected by green skybridges on various levels. Terraces link to a stepped podium connected by cascading waterfalls over several levels. The towers are surrounded by accessible green space equal to 1.25 times the size of the site. This greenery serves as a public sanctuary and mediates the microclimate – a sustainable solution for rapidly growing cities.
