Ho Chi Minh City, VN
Lofty and light, billowing as if shaped by the wind and water that flow past it, the Lancaster Residences building is a welcome departure from the typical southeast-Asian apartment complex. Its massing and landscape design are crafted to fit its immediate environment: elliptical shapes minimize east/west sun exposure, and breezes pass smoothly over the building’s curves and water features, making the building function as a natural, gentle cooling system. Parks and gardens, both surrounding the towers and embedded in them, provide these benefits through refined design informed by principles of Feng Shui. The result is a network of green spaces throughout that is as economical as it is beautiful.
The building’s interior is a model of integrating a variety of uses into a single building, including shops, restaurants, hanging gardens, luxury apartments, and an expansive landscaped terrace. The synergy of these diverse functions, and their incorporation into the organic, undulating form of the building as a whole, makes the Lancaster Residences an exhibition of architectural and engineering ingenuity.
