Based on the traditional Vietnamese palm-leaf conical hat called the Non La, 806 Nguyễn Văn Linh creates a dynamic new addition to the skyline.

806 Nguyễn Văn Linh is a new 454-unit residential development in two buildings in the Phu My Hung district in southern Ho Chi Minh City. The project is located on the Nguyễn Văn Linh Parkway, and given its size and prominence, will serve as a new marker and gateway to Phu My Hung's New City Center.

The project occupies two non-contiguous parcels, both of which straddle the parkway, but are separated by a low-rise structure between them. However, the massing and facade treatment of both towers allows the project to read as a single development. Both towers have a continuous tapered shading at each floor that wraps around the curvilinear massing. It is based on the traditional Vietnamese palm-leaf conical hat called the Non La, providing protection from the sun and rain with a modern interpretation.

The separation of the larger parcel into three towers creates corner views, while at top they are linked to maximize the views toward Crescent Lake. These smaller towers are also massed to relate to the single smaller tower to the east. This overall concept creates a shifting massing that gives the project a sense of movement along the parkway.
