Designed by Vo Trong Nghia Architects, a sustainable new hotel on the Vietnamese coast will see stunning greenery flow over its façade, creating a tropical landmark that will accentuate the local landscape and provide a point of interest for tourism.
Greenery flows over planted terraces in plans for a hotel on the Vietnamese coastline, designed by Vo Trong Nghia Architects. Shortlisted in the Leisure-Led Development category at the World Architecture Festival 2018, the architects’ aim for the Chicland Hotel is to introduce a tropical essence that will compliment the structure’s towering form.
Vietnam-based Vo Trong Nghia designed Chicland Hotel for a narrow plot on the main road beside the My Khe beach. At only 15 metres wide with a 46-metre depth, the tower is made up of 21 storeys and features 129 rooms. Alongside accommodation, the hotel includes a café on the ground floor and rooftop, which also features a pool.
The Chicland Hotel is situated in the historic town of Danang — a popular tourist destination on the Vietnam east sea coast. Three sides of the building are covered by plants to express the local dynamism of strong greens to be a symbol of the area.
The plants will provide an aesthetic view, together with filtering the strong tropical sunlight. After researching into the local area, Vo Trong Nghia chose plants that would thrive and aesthetically blend into the local environment.
