As Vietnam strives to become one of the prosperous nations in Southeast Asia, the role of foreign consultants in the development of Vietnamese architecture becomes increasingly important.

At Dewan Architects + Engineers, we aim to create a better world. As architects, we understand how the environment affects people's lives.

Efforts to promote and nurture a strong sense of community throughout Vietnam as well as other Dewan offices globally.

In fact, I think: Whether foreign consultants have successful experience in Vietnam or not depends on each specific case and project. It is important to find a balance that benefits both internal and external stakeholders. The right combination of technology, education, and local resources can help create an environment where everyone can benefit from the presence of a foreign consultant.
Therefore, the role of foreign architectural consulting firms in Vietnam is necessary. The diversity of knowledge, experience, trends and information they provide helps the local architecture industry understand international standards and adopt more innovative approaches. With this support, Vietnam's architecture industry can continue to grow and develop, addressing the various challenges facing the country.

Inspired by the mountain fairy, in collaboration with TTAS, Dewan created artificial topography with stepped platforms encouraging interaction with nature, human interaction and annual monsoon seasons to prevent flooding creating a spectacular living landscape that changes with the weather. The lower floors will have the main lobbies and private meeting rooms that do not require natural light and complementary functions for the staff, and the public, including nurseries, a library, a supermarket, restaurants and learning centres. The ministries’ main entrances are reached through a customised entrance designed by a nationwide student competition to identify the buildings and afford a connection to its community whilst highlighting a tribute to the older generations of Vietnam who built the country.
The dragon is characterised by its flexibility to accommodate a series of strips that can be added or removed. Dewan's ambition is to create the longest building globally, which will become the iconic landmark of Vietnam. It will be seen from space. The head of the dragon forms the impressive tower that is the tallest building in the area and is visible from the surrounding streets. The yellow hue of the façade is inspired by the presidential palace and is a tribute to the rich history of Vietnam. An impressive square in front of the tower houses 100 symbolic eggs. It will be utilised as a venue for national events and bears references to the legend of Lạc Long Quân and Âu Cơ.
Vung Tau Hotel
The six-star hotel Vung Tau Hotel integrates the interior and exterior on the southern point of Vung Tau island with views across Hon BA, the sea, the beach and the Jesus statue. Dewan proposed three linked towers to maximise the views from the hotel and afford guests a unique experience to enjoy geometries inspired by the surrounding landscapes in the presence of the sea.
The commercial and indoor games area have direct access to the sea. The podium is covered with a ‘landscape’ carpet connecting the pool, all-day dining and the basement.
Amaala Triple Bay Yacht Club
AMAALA’s Triple Bay Yacht Club aims to create a unique meeting point between land and sea in the Prince Mohammed bin Salman Nature Reserve in Saudi Arabia. The keystone development will be a unique meeting point and free-flowing structure between the land and the sea.
