Bamboo Restaurant Wins World Architecture Award

The impressive pics you see are from the Son La Restaurant which won the Hotel and Leisure category at The World Architecture Festival in Singapore at the beginning of October.

The restaurant was designed by Vo Trong Nghia who is famous for his work with bamboo and designing restaurants.

It will be park of a new hotel complex in the Son La province of Vietnam. The site is difficult to access and because of this restriction the architects decided to work with local stone work and bamboo.

The bamboo structure makes up most of the restaurant with eight large pillar style structures surrounded by stone walls. Natural gaps left in the bamboo structures provide light and a window to the night sky.

Vo Trong Nghia also designed this beautiful floating restaurant structure in Vietnam, another project he tackled with bamboo.
