Named The Flying Block Hotel, the 1,200-square-metre hotel consists of accommodation units and resorts for professionals living and working in Phu My town.
The town has 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.
TAA DESIGN was commissioned to design a hotel to provide accomodation units that have distinctive character within its surrounding.
The hotel, which has earthy tones, has balconies protruding from every point in different sizes and green elements.
The studio started their design concept with the idea of creating "flying greenery blocks".
The dimensions of the balconies have width of 2 meters and 3.5 meters, changing depending on the façade dimensions.
According to the studio, the goal of the balconies is to provide a variety of outdoor activities, such as a garden, elevated playground, 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.
The plan layout is divided into four blocks, with the traffic lane also serving as a natural ventilation gap to increase airflow. The combination of the extended blocks and large trees provide shade to 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," said TAA DESIGN.
