VTN architects‘ design features six V-shaped wall-blocks that follow the lay of land and connect through an open corridor. these blocks form triangular surface spaces: two sides close while the other side opens towards lake and abundant trees. the six walls create an open book shape, generating a sense of openness to its surrounding lively nature. the façade directly faces its surrounding environment, allowing employees to relax and be immersed in nature.


the viettel office measures 1,427 square meters, and sits among a bed of trees

 

 

by orienting the studio to the north, the office offers employees spectacular views of the surrounding vietnamese forest. the high V-shaped walls are designed to cut strong and harsh sunlight, boasting an impressive exterior façade for those who enter the office. the roof garden works as outside studio where the small perforated holes in the walls provide gentle sunlight and ventilation to the rooftop studio.
