Alacarte Ha Long Bay Condotel by Steven Thor named Future Project of the Year

Aedas project Alacarte Ha Long Bay Condotel in Vietnam, designed by Executive Director Steven Thor, was recently named Future Project of the Year at Ashui Awards 2018, through a two-stage process of expert jury selection and public voting organised by Vietnam Urban Planning and Development Association.

The resort condotel development occupies a prime seafront plot with large sweeps of unobstructed views towards the heritage site of Ha Long Bay. The building design is a perfect composition of modern and traditional, presenting the unique elements of Vietnamese culture in a contemporary context. With a façade design inspired by the undulating flow of sea waves, the 35-storey tower sits on top of a four-storey podium, offering hotel rooms, serviced apartments, restaurants, ballrooms, meeting rooms, gyms and four-season pools, spa facilities and retail outlets. While most rooms enjoy breathtaking seaview, the infinity pool, sky bars and restaurants on the rooftop also overlook Ha Long Bay.

The site enjoys good accessibility with road connections on three sides. To enhance pedestrian connectivity and create a focal point along the promenade, the ground level is designated for retail. Its strategic location ensures high visibility from the city and the bay.

Since it was first launched in 2012, the Ashui Awards have been dubbed as Vietnam’s Oscars Awards in the field of architecture and construction. The aim is to honour architects who have designed or built showcase structures, highlight the professionals who are examples for all, honour those who contribute to the architecture and environment in Vietnam; and provide accolades to the new and valuable buildings and constructions.
