From the Architect
Vung Ro Bay is an opportunity to develop a new destination for Phu Yen Province and Vietnam. Atkins was commissioned to transform this vision into a masterplan for a long term strategy of growth at the most easterly point of Vietnam. Key components of the design include a marina, resort hotels, urban living community and private residential villas. The masterplan draws its inspiration from the natural beauty of the surroundings and an aspiration to create an integrated walkable community space.
Key design principles have been applied throughout the masterplan to include sustainability, identity, adaptability, diversity, public realm, compatibility, accessibility and density and massing. Three distinctive areas have been designed: the marina development with its cascading tier design allowing direct sea views; the village occupying the valley plain; and the Bai Mon with its sandy beach resort and the historical 1890 lighthouse. A green thread links these areas physically and visually to form one integrated and cohesive design.
Appropriate sustainability elements have been embedded within the masterplan to address the infrastructure, engineering and built environment in general. The aim is to reduce the impact on the existing landscape, avoid contamination of the natural watercourses, mitigate flood risk, use local technologies and methods, reduce energy demand, conserve water, reduce waste and improve safety and quality of life.
