Tonkin Tower II

Vinhomes Smart City belongs to Vingroup as one of the first smart city developments in Vietnam, using smart home features, electric bus infrastructure and the holistic approach to serve as full-service provider. SUA focusses on the building performance for comfort living and healthy impact within that satellite city. The pilot tower Tonkin II belongs to a group of twin high-rise about 38 storeys.

Solution Scenario - Parkdeck - late 2023

Vinhomes Smart City management offers a future mall and parking building as template for a greening pilot. The SUA team provides a preliminary design and feasibility study in cooperation with WILO and submit for approval. A first teaser of the endeavour down below.
The overall idea by covering parts of the roof top and the facade later on is the usage and combination of rain besides grey water for irrigation purposes, aiming a cooling of the building envelope and furthermore a reduction in energy consumption. Climate sensors take measures and monitor relative air temperature and relative air humidity from the surface of the leaves, within the gap and on the wall outer and inner surface.

Solution Scenario Research - Update 2023

In-depth studies of the TONKIN II building envelope and construction within the study area and surrounding high-rise buildings resulted in four scenarios that identified positive contributions to the environment and optimized building management in climatic analyses. These proposals can contribute to significant energy savings opportunities and thus increase living comfort.

General information

Vinhomes Smart City is situated in the western area of Hanoi in Tay Mo, Tu Liem on the highway to Hoa Binh and Ba Vi a retreat area for many Hanoian citizens.
