Vinhomes Metropolis is our newest project located in the heart of Vietnams capital Hanoi in Lieu Giai Street, opposite renowned projects such as Lotte Hanoi & Daewoo Hotel. This is the first ETFE project completed in Vietnam and at the International Property Awards won “Best Residential High-rise Development Vietnam”.

The developer, Vingroup is a Vietnamese conglomerate focusing on real estate development. It is controlled by Phạm Nhật Vượng, the first and richest billionaire in Vietnam.

The luxury apartment complex Metropolis Liễu Giai includes three resident blocks and two office blocks, a hospital, a school and a shopping mall. Designed by Atkins at their Hong Kong offices, the architects of Burj Al Arab, Dubai, it’s an amazing architecture project overall:

The swimming pool at the residential complex is covered by 750 m² Texlon ® 2-layer ETFE cushion roof. It was a special requirement of the project team that families with young children can use this space safely: The special composition of the foil and our unique prints ensures thermal comfort and also UV-protection because of its unique prints. At the same time it feels like being outdoors, due to the high light transmission.

Whatever the weather, thanks to the roof, the pool can be used:

Important for clients and architects were a lightweight structure which was both elegant when viewing from above and below as well as efficient so not to impose large loadings on the podium level. That, the outstanding Texlon® ETFE fire performance and its self-cleansing properties were deciding factors.
Sports and leisure combined and just a step away from your home!
