VIETNAM 2017-2018 Atkins 13th Floor Wharf T&T Centre Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui Kowloon, Hong Kong t: +852 2972 1000 f: +852 2890 6343 e: w: Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, is one of the world’s most respected design, engineering and project management consultancies. The company has designed Landmark 81, a multiaward winning project which has been further bestowed with the coveted title of ‘World’s Best Architecture’. The 460-metre high landmark building in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam is ideally located within Vinhomes Central Park. Designed by Atkins for Vingroup, its expansive façade faces the beautiful Saigon River. Encompassing an area of 241,000m² and comprising 81 storeys, Landmark 81 will be the tallest building in Vietnam and in the whole of South East Asia. Its upper portion will accommodate the five-star Vinpearl Hotel, while the predominant function will be residential along with a luxurious shopping centre. This will include the finest retailers all under one roof for a top-class experience. Featuring alongside this impressive array of mixed amenities are finely crafted landscape features. These will enhance and enliven the architectural design as the landscaping gradually grows upwards from the plaza to the many roof terraces surrounding the podium and tower. Atkins’ challenge as architects was to create a unique and dynamic tower design to support Vingroup’s vision for a high-end mixed-use development project. The tower is also integrated into the public realm, which addresses sustainable design challenges at various interfaces of the project. Landmark 81 now spirals above the growing skyline of the city adding a new iconic landmark to Ho Chi Minh City’s towering skyline.

CHINA Head Architecture is a multiaward winning, Hong Kong based practice with a focus on retail design and broadcast studios. One its latest projects, Phoenix TV International Media Center has won the highly coveted title of ‘World’s Best Interior’. Although Phoenix New Media’s iconic building had already come to define its Beijing neighbourhood in China, the studio and newsroom designed by Head Architecture gave it the heart it needed and deserved. The client’s brief was to create a functional newsroom around a single idea of repeated circles. The challenge was to create a collaborative workspace paired with a newsroom to raise the bar for all Chinese broadcasters. The resulting circular theme of the main news desk ripples through the studio, creating a myriad of corners, curves and light. Circular columns sheathed in backlit glass create new reflections at each turn, highlighted by the curving walkways. Recalling the zig-zag bridges of classical Chinese gardens, the corners invite staff and visitors alike to pause and talk or simply admire the view. Undoubtedly, one of the most innovative features is the producer’s Control Room which is suspended from the ceiling above the main news desk forming a striking visual centrepiece. Above all, the studio rigorously adheres to a single concept, housing state-of-the-art broadcast facilities as well as staff offices. Specifically designed by Head Architecture to be versatile, it offers Phoenix’s producers endless shooting angles and variations. 2017-2018 HEAD Architecture and Design Limited 17th Floor, Casey Building, 38 Lok Ku Road Sheung Wan, Hong Kong t: +852 2869 5725 f: +852 2578 4230 e: w: WORLD’S BEST INTERIOR DESIGN PHOENIX TV INTERNATIONAL MEDIA CENTER BY HEAD ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN LIMITED BEST INTERNATIONAL MIXED-USE INTERIOR Phoenix TV International Media Center by HEAD Architecture and Design Limited BEST MIXED-USE INTERIOR ASIA PACIFIC Phoenix TV International Media Center by HEAD Architecture and Design Limited BEST MIXED-USE INTERIOR CHINA Phoenix TV International Media Center by HEAD Architecture and Design Limited International Property Awards 13
