with a limited budget, the goal of the ‘tropical pavilion’ by group8asia is to create a structure with a capacity of 1,700 employees working in the Fsoft C4 headquarters in hanoi, vietnam. located in the park in front of the main office, the building and its drawn profile blend into the vegetation of the landscape.

mingling with trees, it seems that the users lose the perception of its limits. the transparency of the façade makes the place an open interior space with no breaks nor visual barriers. in order to break the scale, create islets of vegetation, and ensure natural ventilation, patios are integrated into the organization.

the result is a dialogue between tradition, nature, and contemporary vietnam. the idea of the pavilion was influenced by old forms of the country’s architecture – such as the town hall – and has additional specific characteristics to adapt to the lush climate.  the green roof and veranda are meant to protect those within the space from the sun. between the green color of the supporting columns, the internal plants, and views of the landscape all around, help the building stand as a forest from the outside and a cocoon of organic life from the inside.
