项目坐落于菊芳国家公园(Cuc Phuong) 边缘的山脚下，周边绿树成荫，自然环境极佳。Vedana餐厅是Vedana度假村总体规划的一部分，且这两个项目均由武重义建筑事务所(VTN Architects)负责设计。度假村共包括135栋别墅、5栋公寓酒店以及8栋豪华单层别墅。作为重要的公共空间之一，Vedana餐厅位于度假村的中央。除了为旅客们提供全天候的用餐空间外，餐厅还可以作为婚礼等大型活动的场地使用。
Embedded itself at the edge of Cuc Phuong, a forest situated in the foothills of mountains and diverse vegetation, Vedana Restaurant is a part of the Vedana Resort masterplan. VTN Architects was in charge of both projects. The resort was designed with a capacity to accommodate up to 1350 people in 135 villas, five condotels, and eight bungalows. As a significant structure, the restaurant is located in the center of the resort. The space is used for all-day dining but can be converted to host larger events such as weddings, among other purposes.

The restaurant is positioned strategically next to an artificial lake that functions as a natural air-conditioner. Making use of the lake is essential concerning the hot and humid weather during the summer in Cuc Phuong Commune in particular and northern Vietnam in general. Additionally, the lake is also a huge reservoir to store rainwater and groundwater from the mountains. Subsequently, the lake is utilized for irrigation of all plants on the 16.4 hectares site, including around 15000 blossom trees as a part of the resort’s long-term plans. Having that in mind, the restaurant is positioned in the middle of that resort’s blossom forest. The view towards the blossom forest, the mountains, and the lake are omnipresent for visitors even from the middle of the dorm-shaped structure.

The three-gabled circular roof, spanning as large as 1050 sqm, is assembled from two stacked ring-shaped roofs and a dome roof on top, that is detached by light strips, respectively. The biggest radius measures at around 18 m while the structure height stands at almost 16 m, making it VTN Architects’ highest bamboo structure to date. The stepped roof, inspired by traditional architecture, is made of 36 modular frames that appear like a multi-level structure, yet they are on a single floor.

Thanks to the openness of the restaurant, the indoor space ascends slowly to the outdoor space via a semi-outdoor space, creating a rich spatial experience for visitors. They can feel both the interior and exterior space, as well as the inside of the bamboo architecture and the outside consisting of the mountains and lake at the same time.
