Doan Ket (West Lake) is a prestigious location on the north side of the lake with views of the Royal Palace. The project comprised of retail shops, restaurants, sports and residential facilities as well as a kindergarten. The focus on energy efficiency was a design feature in this C&A partnership award winning international design. The lake formed a natural cooler element for the centralised air-conditioning plant whilst the building’s east-west elevation minimise the solar heat penetration thus reducing energy consumption. The curved aero dynamic design improves airflow around and through the building allowing the central atrium around the circulation areas to be naturally ventilated.
