[Text as submitted by architect] The project is a complex of accommodations and resorts for professionals living and working in Phu My town, where the largest concentration of industrial parks in Ba Ria Vung Tau province is located, with many heavy industrial factories and container ports. Improving the quality of the living environment is the focus of the project.
Flying Greenery Blocks: The concept behind creating “flying greenery blocks” with a width of 2 to 3.5 meters is to provide a variety of outdoor activities, such as a garden, elevated playground, etc., that are integrated into each space to offer a natural experience and relaxation after a day of work in the industrial park.
The blocks are arranged in a staggered manner to create vertical spaces for trees to grow and develop while also creating a lively rhythm on the facade.
Ventilation and Sunshade: The layout is divided into 4 blocks, with the traffic lane also serving as a natural ventilation gap to increase airflow. The combination of the extended blocks and large trees provides shade for the surface of the building.
“The flying block” is a design solution that aims to improve the living quality of high-rise complexes in urban areas.
