Text description provided by the architects. Located at the entrance of Flamingo Dai Lai Resort, Forest In The Sky – a property of the Flamingo Holding Group – boasts all the beautiful scenery of a 123-hectare eco-resort and is surrounded by the majestic Tam Dao Mountain. With a location 15 km from Noi Bai Airport, although it is only a commune in a rural area, the architecture also helps to create a favorite destination for domestic and international tourists in Vietnam. In a context of limited access to technology and equipment, Design makes efficient use of available resources and promotes local techniques. The use of local workers created jobs for the farmers, helping to improve their lives for many years.
One of the most eye-catching features of the design, the so-called “Forest in the Sky”, is that all four sides of the building are covered in greenery. Inspired by vertical forest architecture, this green “jungle” building was designed and housed over 75,000 plants of all types, including shrubs, vines, colorful flowers, and even large-trunked trees. . They overflow from irregularly placed balconies and creep up the sides of structures up to 100 meters in height and form 188 Hanging Gardens Babylon. The 11-storey building consists of 181 celestial villas with luxury interiors and a premium service and entertainment complex.
Along with state-of-the-art technologies, local materials are fully utilized in the construction of buildings, pioneering a new standard of sustainable and environmentally friendly architecture. Adobe brick, a mixture of cement powder and wood pulp, and environmentally friendly cellular lightweight concrete blocks have been widely used. These are local materials that are less likely to have negative impacts on the environment. Other solutions applied in the project were the use of local wood for the interior and concrete made on site.
Typical energy saving features of this building are the application of automatic ventilation; energy-saving VRV air conditioning; inductive LED lighting, solar energy and heat pump systems. Additionally, Forest in The Sky is designed to use laminated/tempered glass systems in a combination of roof and wall glazing to maximize natural daylight, reducing the need for electric lighting during the day. Reducing the wall-to-window ratio, using reflective paint for exterior walls, and insulating roofs and exterior walls also help reduce energy consumption. The wastewater treatment system (100% of domestic wastewater is treated and reused for irrigation and flush toilets, further nourishing the green spaces themselves); with the above sustainability approach, the building has achieved EDGE Advanced, a green building certification, due to its ability to reduce energy by 42%, water by 22% and building materials by 36%. construction used, establishing a world-renowned reputation as a truly green landmark inside and out.
Forest In the Sky is an ecosystem (including apartments, trees, land, and creatures) that all create an inseparable population. Through the unification of vertical and stepped space, more spaces were created to plant trees and form ventilation openings as well as different views inside the building. This combination forms a suitable living space with ventilation and solar radiation solutions simultaneously.
All balconies are covered in greenery combined with bamboo floors and wide glass walls to both soak up the sun, enjoy the natural fresh air and erase the separation between indoor and outdoor space. The aim of the project is to create a peaceful and harmonious coexistence between man and nature. The project wishes to create a luxurious and friendly resort space, evoking a green architectural model for Vietnamese villages, helping to stabilize people’s lives based on heritage, and promoting local cultural quintessence in the context of urban boom and ‘market economy.
