The Lotus @ West Lake Hanoi
Iconic Branded Tower.
A lakefront architecture design that won Best-of-Show recognition at a 2009 competition in Hanoi, organised by Doan Ket Village, a developer and a subsidiary of a Vietnamese bank.
The lotus-inspired design is uniquely divided into two vertical halves like palms pressed together. It is also covered by shutters, mimicking the lotus in a pond, which blooms and closes at different times of day.
