GREEN OFFICE BUILDING in SAIGON
T3 Team moved in a new Green Office building recently. It is located in District 2 at Saigon. The main objective was to create a “Pole of Competence” specializing in Green Architecture, sustainable urban design and landscape design as well as in green Interior Design. Into this “pole”, we find several companies like T3 Architecture Asia (green architecture and contemporary interior design – www.t3architecture-asia.vn), DeSo (green architecture and sustainable town planning: www.deso-architecture.com/), ELLE Architecture (Green architecture and Permaculture consultant: www.ellearchitecture.com), ELEK (green lighting Consultant/designer: www.elek.vn), and few other members… Located in a green area, this new office is mainly made by wood structure and palm leaves roof. Walls are built with hard wood planks while the floor is in polished concrete. The main concept is to do a green building which is also cheap to build, with a very pleasant view from all offices opened on Nature and Water features. T3 gave some technical advices to the main design (LAA Studio – Architecture and landscape design) to increase the comfort of all customers by improving sun protection, thermal and phonic insulation as well as by proposing to use LED lighting and efficient AC to save energy as much as possible. T3 also designed some specific furniture for its office made by metal and hardwood to fit with the whole project and make it nice in terms of aesthetic.
