Named Thanh Long Bay Gallery, the gallery is located at Viet Nam’s coastal which is Ke Ga's Lighthouse.
Covering a total of 1,288-square-metre area, the program of the gallery includes drop off area, lobby, sale area, mockup house, cinema, female & male restroom, technical department, staff room.
Guests are welcomed with a long entry hall and its roof raised on slender columns, which makes visitors feel like they are walking in a forest.
Conceived as landscape boxes, each boxes contain its own landscape layer also play as a cushion between the people inside and the opened-seaview outside. Boxes are also covered with lush greenery on their façades.
"The project has a model house section as well as being a welcome hall for new coming-to-town guests," said MIA Design Studio.
Since the main purpose of the building was designed to serve guests and as a showroom gallery, the interior spaces required clearness with the capability of hosting numbers of people when needed, according to the studio.
The design criteria is to broaden the most space because of the seaview. In each separate space, the design team create long panorama frame horizontally so that the people inside can make the most out of the skyline.
The weather aspect is carefully concerned which lead to the occurrence of deep and shallow awning incase of hurricane.
Choosing a boxed system and thanks to the capability of extended construction system, the view is broadened. Each box is exploited differently in terms of lighting and landscape aspect.
"By this approach, guests can fully enjoy the nature but the building is well protected from weather changes and hurricanes," added the studio.
In the project, the architects used a long opened corridor in landscape to extend the usage of the building which also improve the experience of the guests.
"The main aspect is still the landscape and the view, we want the people who come to the Gallery can actually inhale the distinguishing atmosphere of the place in the most memorized way," as the team continued.
