Hung Ngan new town
The central lake as the natural connector of the new development to bring life to the new city
Hung Ngan is a new urban area designed to be a satellite town of Hanoi, at only 40 km from its downtown. The master plan is designed on a total area of 482 Ha, on a flat agricultural land.
Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, is known for its centuries-old architecture and a rich culture with Southeast Asian, Chinese and French influences. At its heart is the chaotic Old Quarter, where the narrow streets are roughly arranged by trade. There are many little temples, including Bach Ma, honoring a legendary horse, plus Đồng Xuân Market, selling household goods and street food.
The new city will locate low rise residential areas, laboratories and hi-tech parks, a commercial center, all connected by a linear park with a strong natural water features: lakes represent one of the key element of Hanoi city landscape that we want to embrace in the design of the new city.
The central lake is a green park for the people, to walk, practice sport, gather, a place for events and shows, a public space for the community and the symbol of the new town.
Hung Ngan will be connected to Hanoi city center and the international airport with a new highway and a new bridge on the Red River.
