Vietnamese Feng Shui has played a role in bringing the benefits of 'vertical gardens' and green roofs to 720 families who will eventually live in a high rise building in Ho Chi Minh City. The lush green 'vertical garden' facade on the 22 storey housing development will be achieved with the use of bamboo planter boxes. A large rooftop garden will provide residents with lots of private, nourishing green space and stunning views.
Ho Chi Minh city is predominantly a concrete jungle-the bamboo will not only provide a lush aesthetic to the building, it will also work as a protective screen. The plantings will offer privacy and protection to residents from the harsh sun, provide heat regulating properties and improve air quality in the city, as well as complement the expansive rooftop garden
