Blissful bamboo brilliance

Nocenco cafe by VTN architects

Located in the city centre of Vinh city in northern Vietnam, this renovation project – Nocenco cafe by VTN architects was to design a café on the topmost floor and rooftop of a medium rise building overlooking the adjacent low-rise houses, set against the backdrop of the green mountains and the ravishing white waters. A majority of the buildings in the locality were damaged during the Vietnam War and were subsequently renovated in the colonial façade styles inspired from European designs. In a sea of out-of-context European designs, the client wanted a subtle yet unique addition to the cityscape, thereby transforming the bland building into an icon of the city.
