Appreciation towards Kengo Kuma and Associates for providing the following description:


The design was inspired from the winding and glistening Saigon river running beside the site. Continuous curving lines were used on the facade of the apartment.

The curves of the facade staggered on each floor, creating an open balcony for each home, from which people could enjoy the blue sky with no shelter.

The lower part of the building got hint from the terraced fields in Vietnam. Wooden plant boxes were placed on the facade in a rhythmical way. People could feel the lush ground from the green walls.
