Project Description

Projects: Mulberry Lane Complex, Mo Lao Residential Building, Hanoi Investor: Capitalland Group and Hoang Thanh Company Architecture designer: RSP Architects Planners & Engineers Pte. Ltd. Total land area: 24,466 m2 Constructions complex includes 05 dwelling units (Block A, B, C, D, E). The building complex is recognized with the following items: - Energy efficiency use. - Water efficiency use. - Environmental quality protection. - Greenary area. 5 blocks are located with green space, entertainment space, pedestrian area and water ponds. It is not similiar to other projects in the city, the building complex is designed with unique space, high construction quality and several integrated utilities.

Climate Analysis


Hanoi has a warm humid subtropical climate with plentiful precipitation.The city experiences the typical climate of Northern Vietnam with 4 different seasons. Summer, from May until August, is characterized by hot and humid weather with abundant rainfall. September to October is fall, characterized by a decrease in temperature and precipitation. Winter, from November to January, is dry and cool.The city is usually cloudy and foggy in winter. The averages rainfall is 1,680 millimetres (66.1 in) per year and the most precipitation is from May to September. The average temperature is 23.6°C (74°F) with a mean relative humidity of 79%.The highest recorded temperature was 42.8°C (109°F) on SMay 1926 while the lowest recorded temperature was 2.7 °C (37 °F) on January 1955.

Design Approach


The building form is designed tooptimize daylighting and ventilation from the topographic area.Constructions complex is included 05 dwelling units (Block A, B, C, D, E). The building complex is recognized with the following items: - Energy efficiency use. - Water efficiency use. - Environment quality protection. - Greenary area. The buildings were awarded BCI Green Star and Green Building Prize of Vietnam Architecture Association.

The orientation of buildings is considered to avoid facing the to East or West but to utilize the prevailing wind from the South and the South-East. The buildings with ventilation gaps/clefts surrounding may get more daylighting and ventilation into auxiliary space (restroom, kitchen, etc.). Therefore, most their spaces have natural ventilation and daylighting. Garden is in the middle of blocks with ponds for evaporative cooling. Trees and water ponds are installed for shading and evaporative cooling. Reducing the concrete surface by weed area is to increase permeable surface. More weed and trees surface helps to reduce heat island effect. Water ponds also reduce the surrounding temperature by 2-3°C or even more. Water in swimming pool is recycled.

Kitchen in Vietnamese culture is the most used are in their house. To avoid heat trapped in the apartment because of cooking, the balcony was built next to the kitchen. This arrangement helps to increase the natural ventilation, reduce the bad smell and keep the kitchen clean and dry. The buildings with ventilation gaps/clefts surrounding easily get more daylighting and ventilation into auxiliary space (restroom, kitchen...). Therefore most of their spaces have natural ventilation and daylighting. This is one of the issue which we need to consider. This is also applied in several projects by the leader of Department of urban planning and architecture several years ago. Design strategies are applied as follows: 1 - Technical roof for insulation 2- Double hollow brick with low U-value for better insulation Double glazing with 8,38mm thickness, SC is 0.71 (not clear to meet EEBC or not) 3 - Balcony as solar shading in some spaces 4 - Vegetalisation of the surroundings 5 - Water Efficient equipment 6 - Evaporated cooling 7 - Natural ventilation 8 - Daylighting 9 - Energy efficiency use (building envelope, lighting, HVAC system, hot water system, elevator)

Special Feature


The buildings with ventilation gaps/clefts surrounding for more daylighting and ventilation into auxiliary space (restroom, kitchen...). Therefore most of spaces have natural ventilation and daylighting.

Water Efficient equipment.

To avoid the use of air-conditioning, several passive strategies are used : insulation roof, cross ventilation by ventilation clefts/gaps, reduce heat, orientation according to prevailing winds. The large and dense garden and vegetalisation of building access permit to limit heat accumulation. Artificial lights are reduced to accurate requirement. And water ponds for evaporate cooling.

Lessons Learned


The buildings are the first ones in Hanoi awarded BCI Green Mark. Also, their architecture, interior design and landscapes are anchored in local landmark as well as are the symbol for local sustainable growth as well as

The area was designed in a friendly environmental manner.The water filter system is in the compliance with the international standard. However, sometimes, water is dirty with strange color.
