More Infos

Set in unique park-like scenery, the complex of the New Foreign Ministry of Vietnam alludes to the culture and traditions of the city of Hanoi and incorporates them into the design.

A multifunctional urban square is used for ceremonies and events as well as for official access with direct access to the secured area. Accessed via a staff driveway, the building is strictly divided into security zones.

With office space for 2,500 employees, the large form encloses two atriums that merge into one another, in which, protected from the hot climate, conference rooms, reception zones, restaurants and break areas form the representative area.

The energy, air conditioning and lighting concept is designed as a single integrated Low Energy Concept, which aims to realise and maintain a sustainable ecological complex during its entire lifecycle.
