Ho Chi Minh City Building : Unilever Vietnam
Saigon South Office Development, South East Asia – design by PTW
Unilever Vietnam Headquarters
Date built: 2008
Design: PTW Architects
Location: Nguyen Luong Bang Street, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Client: Unilever Vietnam
The new headquarters for Unilever Vietnam are located in a new urban area known as Saigon South. On a 4,800m² site, the building contains approximately 10,000m² of office space providing a high degree of flexibility and large column-free spaces. In addition, the building provides areas for consumer product trials.
Unlike a conventional office tower where large tenancies are distributed over many floors, the brief specifically sought a low-rise building with large open floors & a high dgree of interconnectivity between levels, which is facilitated by effective interconnecting stairs & voids.
The built form has an informal character that welcomes people into its dramatic public spaces. With due consideration of climatic conditions, the building features 3.2 metre high ceilings and façade shading elements, which are arrayed in a playful & dynamic pattern along the facades. Whilst fully air-conditioned, the building has been designed for easy cross-ventilation and has great exposure to favourable cooling sea breezes from the East and South. Full height perimeter glazing allows natural light to penetrate deep into the floor plate.
