The Ascent

Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City

The dramatic twin towers rise 29 storeys from a 5-storey podium carpark, rewarding the residents with amazing perspectives of the city, Saigon River and beyond. Sunshading fins are dual purpose: keeping out solar glare and enhancing the architectural identity of the towers. Innovative vertical green walls shield the carpark from view while complementing the luxuriant foliage in the roof garden, sky deck and surroundings.
