The project joins VTN’s first project for the complex, the Son La Restaurant (completed in 2013), located further down the campus’ main artery. The domes will add new amenity spaces for the adjacent ceremonial hall (2015), including café and foyer program elements. The various heights of the rounded peaks were inspired by the surrounding mountain line, harmonizing with the landscape and scenery.

Employing the firm’s signature material, bamboo, the construction of the domes draws for traditional Vietnamese basket weaving techniques. Each dome features a double-layered structure capped with a thatch roof. Skylights at the peak of the domes will allow natural light and natural ventilation to permeate through the spaces.
