The Cities & Gardens Boutique Suites is located in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). The 7-level co-living building consists of a coffee shop; eight boutique suites; and a rooftop garden.
Every year, Saigon welcomes millions of visitors who experience the culture, enjoy the city life and look for opportunities. However, as a consequence of poorly controlled development, the green spaces in the city have been sacrificed dramatically.
We proposed the concept of “Cities & Gardens” with the intention to create a building that not only reflects the vibrancy and diversity of the city but also engages and connects with the nature at the same time.
The building façade is consisted of a series of angled blocks, each one is completed with a distinctive design to express the diversity and individuality of the suites while also maintains a consistent built-form. The interior spaces were designed with inspirations drawn from notable cities in the World: New York; Tokyo; Paris; Copenhagen; and Saigon, as well as natural elements including Earth; Water; and Wood. The concept has been realized in a unique building that enriches one’s experience of architecture, interior and the landscape.
