the building is characterized by a flexible steel frame which creates a three-dimensional puzzle:  spaces can be filled according to the changing needs of the tenants. the adjustable system accommodates double height ceilings that alternate with lower mezzanines, allowing for varied uses within the light-filled creative space. lightweight sliding and folding panel facade elements allow users to control light, shade and air, blurring the boundary between inside and outside.

indochine interior and decoration items, collected during many travels throughout the years, play an important role in creating a unique atmosphere for the space. module k has combined its own furniture designs, inspired by the indochine history of saigon, with digitally designed and locally produced futuristic lava furniture and lighting,’ says module k director huy anh.
