Chapman Taylor designs Nam Quang Landmark Tower for central Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam

Chapman Taylor’s Bangkok studio has created a design for a new mixed-use tower in central Ho Chi Minh City, inspired by local traditions.

Located in the city centre’s District 3, Nam Quang Landmark Tower will offer 31 floors of mixed-use space, with five levels of retail at podium level, eight floors of offices and 18 floors containing 172 residential apartments.

An existing, popular cinema will be integrated with the commercial areas in the podium.

The tower’s design concept draws on the shapes and textures of Vietnamese silk lanterns – serving to combine both modern and traditional aspects of Vietnam.

The curved shape of the tower is reminiscent of the lantern’s bamboo frame, while the façades on the podium areas are designed to be translucent, providing natural light to the interiors during daytime and shining like a lantern at night-time.

With its glass curtain wall façade, terracotta mullions, and translucent stone cladding at the retail podium, Nam Quang Landmark Tower will be a striking architectural addition to the skyline of the city.
