When first approached by the client the challenge was already clear, we should propose an architecture that could fit to any rooftop in the city centre.

We proposed to contrast the concrete architecture of the city, and to express freedom of form. a light ceiling covering an open space.

A new rooftop for Saigon.

“It’s possible for everyone to discover this silence within

themselves. It is there all the time, even when we are surrounded

by constant noise. Deep down in the ocean, below the waves

and ripples, you can find your internal silence.”
