CLOUD STREAM - Ho Viet Vinh Architect & Partners

CLOUD STREAM

Following the wind, the stream flows in all directions,

The foggy road is dotted with flying dew drops.

Love is drunk at night in dreams,

Filled with the call of the human realm.

SUỐI MÂY

Theo làn gió suối tuôn về muôn nẻo,

Đường mù sương lấm tấm hạt sương bay.

Tình men say gối đêm vào giấc mộng,

Cho ngập lời tiếng gọi cõi nhân sinh.

Next project | RETREAT HOME

Nestled quietly under the canopy of the coconut forest swaying in the gentle breeze, the simple house comes into existence thanks to the reflections of the dawn sunlight. The house has a simple modern look, inheriting the shape of a traditional house with 3 compartments and 2 wings, with a large veranda surrounding it. The veranda is a transitional space and acts as a climate regulator for the whole house. Not only that, but it is also a place where countless activities connect people with the surrounding open space. The rooms all open to the garden and the doorways pull the garden into its deepest recesses. The nuanced transitions of time and space also take place in the cut of this patio.

Next project | The Ideas competition for Thu Thiem Master Plan

The idea for the Thu Thiem master plan is to create a peninsula filled with trees and water. The urban spatial morphological structure is towards the average spatial scale in harmony with the existing urban space scale. The central square is connected by canals that lead the flow through the wetland forest. Surrounding the Saigon River are open parks, creating a gap connecting with the high-density  urban space on the west bank of the Saigon River.

The idea of ​​​​the master plan of the Thu Thiem new urban center has surpassed more than 29 other contest projects (14 international and 15 Vietnamese), becoming one of the projects that won the high prize after the project selected by SASKI Inc. Company.  Some ideas of this alternative have been added in the detail planning of the concept of SASAKI.

The selection committee includes famous urban experts at home and abroad such as: Professor John Lang-New South Wales, Professor William S.W. Lim-Singapore, Prof. Nguyen The Ba, Prof. Nguyen Manh Thu, …).

The late Prime Minister Vo Van Kiet looked at the plan

Next project | Forest Station

Returning to the forest is like being immersed in pure silence. Each breeze caressing the skin penetrates deep into each cell to wake up the body after a long deep sleep. The breath slowly fills all the skin, making the whole body immersed in the sweetness of heaven and earth. Returning to that place is the way returning your true home.

VOICES of NATURE

The melodious reverberation of the mountains and forests,

Clouds cover the rising sun,

I silently curled up in the wind,

Absorb the mist of the dawn light.

ÂM VANG NÚI RỪNG

Du dương vọng tiếng hoà ca rừng núi,

Mây ngập tràn che khuất mặt trời lên,

Ta lặng im cuộn mình trong làn gió,

Men hơi sương ngút ngọn ánh bình minh.

Next project | PHU DOAN PLAZA

Phu Doan Plaza in existing condition

Phu Doan Plaza at Committee Popular of Thua Thien Hue province (also called City Hall) is a lively and contemporary embodiment as a “Hue ancient capital”. Today the Plaza is an inclusive hub of Hue’s life outdoors but for decades this was not the case. Prior to renovation Plaza was an uninviting and inaccessible maze of raised and sunken terraces, hidden passageways, and gloomy malnourished trees. The opportunity for change raised the park, both physically and metaphorically, to the prominence of its location at the foot of Hue City Hall. The Plaza provides universal accessibility by bringing the entire site to street level, and encourages use throughout the day. The entire Plaza, with its generous lawn, interactive fountain, café, and ample seating amidst green groves of native plantings, are all built atop the nexus of Hue City center’s multi-modal transit system and acts as a connective gateway to all neighborhoods. The park functions as a 8.190 sq.m creating a welcome all-season spot for relaxation and public recreation.

Next project | The PIG House

Concept design

Ancient Greek legend has it that the pig was the favorite animal of Demeter – goddess of crops and farming on earth. This was the holiest god for the Greeks. Since ancient times, people have used pigs to sacrifice this goddess. The magical transformation that turns humans into pigs appears in many myths, such as in Homer’s epic Odysseus. In this story, the crew of the hero ship was turned into pigs by the goddess Circe. Pig is one of the 12 animals that represent the 12-year cycle of Dizhi of China, Vietnam, Japan, Korea, North Korea and many other countries in Asia. It is associated with the Zodiac Pig. Those who believe in Chinese astrology have always attached pig characteristics to people born in the year of the Pig. Those born in this year are often considered lucky and have a prosperous and leisurely life. PIG House is life within and beyond the form of this animist.

Next project | Majestic Hotel Renovation

Established by Hui-Bon-Hoa company (the owner was a Chinese-Vietnamese called Uncle Hoa).Situated right on the corner of Catinat Street (now Dong Khoi Street) and Quai de Belgique Street (now Ton Duc Thang Street). Carrying the then favorite baroque architecture style, the hotel became one of the most elegant and impressive buildings in Saigon after it was finished in 1925. Majestic had three stories and 44 bedrooms, according to a French architect’s original design.In 1948, the Indochina Tourism & Exhibition Department directed by French man Franchini Mathieu bought the ground and first floors of the hotel and rented 44 rooms in 30 years. The hotel was ranked five stars in 2007. Work on two new towers of the hotel on Nguyen Hue Street started in July 2011 to add 353 new rooms. Through a long time of using the space and modern equipment have distorted the value of the building. The task of designing and renovating is to create luxury and recall the feelings of the famous Indochinese architecture once in ancien Saigon.
