Hanoi Ministry

Two eight-storey buildings with a comb-like ground plan form the core of the Ministry in Hanoi. A design interplay of the facade with loggias and green sky lobbies supports the diversity of the spatial quality.

Charming Interlocking Between Open Space and Building

The likewise comb-like shaping of the office levels gives rise to small semi-open interior heights, which creates an attractive interlocking of open space and building. To meet the different requirements within the building, the building envelope consists of 15 different types of facade elements.
