Commenting on the award, Barry Shapiro, Managing Partner – Asia said: “Vertical living is an increasing challenge within many of the rapidly developing cities of Asia. Increasing density to accommodate the growth of cities is a manageable and exciting challenge. 10 DESIGN has sought to create an ‘inspired and inviting’ vertical environment by providing human scaled courtyards, community social spaces, and sky gardens to enhance the living experience for the Narra Residents.”

Catherine Chan, Partner – Marketing commented: “Winning the Asia Pacific Awards is a great honour, and combined with the commercial success of the development is a testament to the creativity and quality delivery by the design team. We look forward to presenting the winning scheme at the award ceremony tentatively scheduled in Bangkok this September.”

The new emerging Empire City presents a unique lifestyle based living environment woven along the ribbon like Saigon River. Situated in this remarkable waterfront location, 10 DESIGN’s masterplan for Narra Residences not only maximises views for apartment units towards the Saigon River and the Empire City’s iconic tower but also maintains the unobstructed view corridor between these landmarks.

The skybridge which connects the Narra towers on the 20th floor will become a strong feature along this visual axis.  It also presents an opportunity to create resort amenities on the skybridge deck, lining with landscaped gardens, an infinity edge pool, and unsurpassed views back towards the skyline of the city.

10 DESIGN has also introduced the ‘Neighborhoods in the Sky’ concept by implementing a series of stacked apartment clusters which are expressed architecturally. These ‘vertical neighborhoods’ help create scale and a sense of community for the residents. They also help to differentiate groupings of units based on locations within the building including those with city views, garden views, river views, and street views.

In the spirit of keeping with the Vietnamese culture, 10 DESIGN has created an oasis of calm on arrival by incorporating a garden that will provide an area of retreat and harmony for residents among the hectic urban environment. This will also be offered to residents in the vertical neighborhoods by creating an elevated garden along with recreational amenities such as a pool, barbecue terraces, and other leisure spaces for residents to enjoy.
