Architectural statement

Situated in one of the most attractive and interesting site in Ho Chi Minh City, Diamond Island has the rare advantage of close proximity to the city business center and at the same time a secluded natural environment with uninterrupted views to the Saigon River and to the old Ho Chi Minh City.

Starting with no preconceptions, Arata Isozaki & Associates developed an environmental and completely new approach to residential design. Integrating and utilizing the natural attributes of the site such as breezes, river views and water on all sides, a new prototype for high end residential buildings and living has been created.

The entire project will be constructed on a green elevated mound which will hide all parking and services while elevating the residential area and creating a large green park to the benefit of the residents. With clean & modern interior layouts, all residential units are to enjoy a minimum of three unique views to the Saigon River and the surrounding, a porous facade and maximum privacy.

Arata Isozaki & Associates truly believes Diamond Island will become a new architectural icon for Ho Chi Minh City and an example for the possibilities of forward thinking & green design.
