This renovation project includes a top-floor café and roof top club and is located in the city center of Vinh city, Vietnam. The challenge was to create an impact on the building by inserting a new structure, using unique and local materials. Through our experience, we know bamboo is easy to access in this tropical climate, which reduces both construction time and budget. In this project, the essence of using bamboo was “lightness”. As bamboo can be lifted up by a few workers and easily transported to the highest floor by a crane.
