six V-shaped concrete structures form office complex in vietnam by VTN architects

VTN architects (vo trong nghia architects) has completed a concrete office complex for a telecommunications company on the outskirts of hanoi, vietnam. located a 40-minute-drive from the city center, the building forms part of a larger lakeside campus surrounded by trees and vegetation. connected by an open corridor, the design comprises six V-shaped structures that align themselves with the sloping terrain. the blocks form a series of triangular spaces that open up towards the lake at the rear of the plot.

the development was commissioned by viettel, vietnam’s largest mobile network operator. this particular project, named ‘viettel offsite studio’, contains a reception area, dining facilities, and four studios that serve as short-term offices for the company’s leaders to work outside of the city. thanks to the book-shaped concrete structures VTN architects’ design of the also results in a series of roof gardens — outdoor areas of tranquility that overlook the scenic campus.

by orienting the studios to the north, the office offers employees views of the surrounding woodland. the high V-shaped walls are designed to filter strong and harsh sunlight, while boasting an impressive exterior façade. meanwhile, holes in the concrete walls ensure that the entire complex receives natural light and ventilation. see designboom’s previous coverage of the project here.
