Viettel Academy Educational Center
Viettel Academy Educational Centre is located in a Training Centre Campus at Hoa Lac Hi-Tech Park, which is 30 km away from Hanoi.
It has a cooling microclimate as it is surrounded by beautiful landscape, lakes and abundant green space. The Educational Centre is very accessible from the residential zone and other facilities due to its central location within the campus. The project is aimed to create a quiet and peaceful space for the trainees to focus on their studies, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. It will provide short-term accommodation and training courses for the staff of Viettel Corporation, Vietnam’s largest mobile network operator.
The Educational Centre consists of 12 blocks, accommodating classrooms, meeting rooms, halls, and offices. The main blocks are 4 to 5 stories whereas the rest are only 2 to 3 stories high. These blocks are surrounded by an overflow pool, which not only creates beautiful reflections of the buildings and surrounding landscape but also helps in regulating its microclimate.
The blocks are connected by multi-level circulation paths, such as corridors, ramps, and staircases. This offers many interesting views as well as various quiet areas for studying. Due of the humid tropical climate in Hanoi, a lightweight concrete roof is designed to cover the majority of semi-outdoor spaces, which also functions as sky walk. Besides, the roof helps to reduce direct radiation from sunlight.
