The 17-storey Centrepoint was one of several office and retail developments planned along the busy corridor that linked the centre of Ho Chi Minh City with Tan Son Nhat International Airport.
The typical floor plates were the largest in Ho Chi Minh City featuring large column free spaces. The floors had excellent natural light penetration with over 60% of floor space within 6 metres of the perimeter façade. They were designed for efficient planning efficiency allowing for subdivision into tenancies as small as 90m² or for lease as single tenancies of up to 2,200m².
Automated light sensors and comprehensive sun-shading and insulating glass façade improved the building’s energy performance and lifecycle costs.
The double height retail tenancies at ground level were set back to provide a sheltered colonnade along Nguyen Van Troi Street. The main entry lobby provided a pedestrian connection between Nguyen Van Troi and Nguyen Trong Tuyen Streets, and direct internal access to a 250 m2 restaurant and café and a landscaped courtyard.
