With its striking architectural design and prominent location in Ho Chi Minh City, the Deutsches Haus Ho Chi Minh City will be a flagship of the Federal Republic of Germany.
The concept was derived from the requirement to create a formal expression of Germany and reflect its role as an industrial and technological leader in the architectural language. The glass façade opens up the high-rise building to the public and reveals some of its internal functions. At the same time, it represents a symbol of modern German architecture abroad. A cost-effective design, low energy consumption, the use of ecological building materials and LEED Platinum certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Platinum Certification) are just some examples of this.
The design takes into account the underlying urban development conditions and planning specifications of the site. Its striking presence unites high technical qualities with transparent elegance.
Deutsches Haus Ho Chi Minh City presents itself to the city as a transparent and inviting building, the façade of which reflects German technology. In addition, the planned double façade serves to emphasise the energy-saving structure under the climatic conditions of Vietnam.
The high-rise building is divided into two complexes that are linked through a recessed glazed connection that constitutes both the central circulation area and hosts particular functions, such as the restaurant and the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany. The design of the complexes presents expressive, sculptural architecture and reflects the urban design requirements which are laid out in the government agreement. The sleekness of the glass façade enhances the sculptural expression.
