Coalimex by G8A Architecture & Urban Planning

The Coalimex building is an office building with an area of about 10’000m2 divided by 10 store and office storeys. Located at 33 Trang Thi Street, in the centre of Hanoi’s Old Quarter, this building stands amidst many commercial centres and historical places. The particular congested context coupled with the will to produce an eco-friendly building brings multiple concerns: noise management, direct view optimisation, natural ventilation principles and how to be an iconic building respectful of its neighbourhood.

A place with power of perception where trees, water, Buddha and human coexist is thus created. (more…)

That his design principles also apply to moderate climate zones, was revealed his 2017 pavilion for the Serpentine Gallery in London. (text by TLmag) (more…)
