About DC6: Being the entrance to the city, it would mark a landmark development and represent the wealth and prosperity of this place: An old and famous weekend resort for the habitants of Ho Chi Minh City and home to the headquarters of all relevant oil companies of Vietnam.
The project is a perfect contradiction: The client asked for a super high density resort at the sea front of Vung Tau: Resort+High Density?
Our goal was to work with the contradictions and solve them by using a simple design strategy to maximize the distance between the buildings yet maintain full views to the surrounding for all units. To achieve this, we had to create a linear super building which combines different apartment typologies in a snake-like organism, that twists and turns to generate the least 'density' within the high density of the development.
