This observation tower features a coffee that hovers above the clouds for a rare view of city Da Lat.
Da Lat is considered one of Vietnam’s most romantic cities and named to suggest, “City of Eternal Spring.” Year-round, clouds cover the majority of Da Lat’s landscape and enhance the city’s elusive charm, giving rise to unique and statement architectural structures. The Tower Flower is one such observation tower and garden space that blossoms above the city bringing travelers to the top of the clouds for a bird’s eye view of the city below.
The Tower Flower, an observation tower molded into the shape of a Lotus flower in the early stages of blooming, the symbol for pure beauty in Buddhism. Sings an ode to those rolling hills of Da Lat with terrace gardens and biophilic design principles. Designed to be a coffee boutique bar as part of a larger resort complex. The tower appears as a giant sculpture, structuring of 27 orange corten steel modules with 12m height, lifting the coffee space of 600m2 at an altitude of 8m comprising internal well hole. The entire roof area is designed as a garden to grow large confetti and large space for visitors to admire the surrounding landscape.
