Firm

  • Industry Coworking,
  • has designed the new coworking location located in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

    We approached the project with a very specific and detailed Design Brief from TOONG – Our customer, they knows exactly what they want in project and what to expect from us. Their goal was to create a space that truly encourages enterprising spirit of youngsters. Futuristic is chosen as design concept for TOONG through our meetings.

    TOONG AT THE OXYGEN is located at The Vista building, District 2, Ho Chi Minh City – an area with large contact with the SaiGon river. We exploited this geographic factor by putting interleaving panel sheets through corridors and small corners of the plan to represent reflec-tions on water surface.

    More than 10 years ago, District 2 was seen as an oasis surrounded by rivers on three sides and not highly evaluated in socio-economic and urban infrastructure by experts. However, in recent years, District 2 has been moving strongly with the development of HCMC and is predicted to be the new city downtown.

    To present this powerful transformation, we choose Geometric design as a theme for the corridor which is connected 2 area of TOONG – The old and the new. The other thing to mention in this project is the reception counter. We choose the “hu tiu” trolley to represent for the street food culture of the old SAI GON.
