This project is located in Hoi An’s Old Town, an area which has rapidly grown since it was officially named by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The approach of Vo Trong is to integrate greenery into the design as a way to rejuvenate urban areas and to contribute to societal improvement. His innovative use of vegetation is therefore the eyecatcher of this project. The linear layout is divided into several internal courtyards, and by lifting the building above the site, it completely mill the ground floor to create an inter-connected network of courtyards. This spatial quality reflects the dynamism of the new Hoi An but also retains the charm of the Old Town.
