the masterplan of luxury beach resort naman retreat in danang, vietman continues with vo trong nghia architects‘ beach bar. along with the multiplicity of bungalows, villas and facilities on site, the overall scheme has been developed by providing physical and mental treatment through the use of nature, greenery and wellness.

the stone walls function as structural support for the bamboo roof




the beach bar lies adjacent to the infinity pool along the coastal front of the resort complex. visualized as a semi-open space –allowing a constant breeze to flow through– the structure is composed of bamboo, stone and finished with a thatch roof. the process in which the robust, natural material was formed was through a method of using fire, soaking and fumigation. approached as a simple, pitched roof structure, the unobtrusive building blends with its tropical setting where the naturally treated bamboo frame reflects the region’s characteristics.
