Opera View (Artex Saigon)
Opera View (Artex Saigon) Caravelle and Continental hotel, which is one of the best place at the corner of Dong Khoi and Le Loi St. with 8 stories on 800m2. Artex Building- a building of commercial center and office is truly a difficult subject for any architects. You must deal with finding the best way to harmonize the beauty between spaces, architectural styles, and well established of the surrounding buildings. With the permitted density of 70%, and only 30% of Artex space left for designers to combine with a small area in the front square in order to create an open area for holding festivals. The decision to use the same shapes as the surrounding areas such as; headquarter of Saigon Tourist- a long-standing work with harmonization between art deco and mid century modern styles, the classical style of the City Theater, and Caravell Hotel- a mid-century modern style has helped Artex building join with the surrounding art community. The ground and medium stories of Artex building are used as commercial site. The upper stories are rented out as offices with the best services. This building is an ideal place for luxurious fashion department and “grade A” offices in the city-center
