VTN architects (vo trong nghia architects) designs castaway island resort along the shore of a touristic vietnamese island in cat ba archipelago. the bamboo destination, which can accommodate up to 160 guests, is only accessible by a two hour boat journey from hai phong port. the private, tropical beach is engulfed on one side by a beautiful mountain range and on the other by an expansive shore of white sand. the resort consists of five huts, a restaurant and a pavilion, which are designed to immerse the guests in nature. gently occupying the white-sand shore, the structure’s materiality is respectful of the environment as it is both integrated with its natural surroundings without damaging the gulf. while construction began in 2017, the completed resort was unveiled at the beginning of this year.
