Located in Hanoi, Vietnam, Vietnam Cement Industry Corporation Headquarters was designed by KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten International GmbH. Today the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Vietnam Cement Industry Corporation Headquarters was held in Hanoi. The Cement Industry Corporation’s head office is the first project for Jürgen Engel’s architectural studio in Vietnam to be built. The new premises for the Vietnam Cement Industry Corporation, which is comprised of a five-storey pedestal building and an approximately 135m high tower, emerged as the victor in a competition as early as April 2008.
Located directly next to the expressway to the airport, the 31-storey office tower for the Cement Industry Corporation will be a distinctive point of reference in the west of the capital Hanoi. Large windows enter into tense interplay with the lamella limestone façade surrounding the entire complex. In addition to limestone’s importance as a raw material for the cement industry, its use in the design of the exterior sheath makes reference to the nearby limestone cliffs in Halong Bay.
