A leader of architecture and urban planning in Vietnam, NQH Architects has completed over 400 projects across southeast Asia, including offices, apartment buildings, mixed-use buildings, shopping centers, villas, townhouses, hospitals, schools, restaurants, and large-scale master plans. As one of the most established Vietnamese architecture firms, NQH has garnered international recognition for the caliber of our designs, winning the Top Ten Architecture Award from BCI Asia Group in seven of the past ten years.
NQH has assembled an international team of 50 employees. We work with engineers, programmers, artists, landscape designers, interior designers, and energy and structural consultants from Vietnam, Asia and the United States; the firm is committed to nurturing and expanding these alliances to maintain the highest standards of design and sustainability.
Based in Vietnam but connected with companies and firms around the world, NQH is uniquely positioned as a leader in sustainable development.
We believe that the coexistence of a flourishing natural environment and an economically robust, smoothly functioning building or neighborhood should never involve a compromise. A development site is not merely a location for construction. Design should be interwoven with the land rather than imposed on it.
Recognizing our profound responsibility in shaping the built environment, NQH encourages sophisticated green design for all of our projects in Vietnam and elsewhere. For each project, we carefully analyze the environmental opportunities and constraints specific to the site at hand. Our thorough, site-specific understanding of natural systems then guides the design process from concept to construction.
THE NQH DIFFERENCE
NQH has exposure to design and construction on a global scale. Partnering with design and sustainability experts worldwide, we insist on maintaining international standards for all our projects. At its best, design enriches people’s daily lives, strengthens the fabric of a community, generates opportunities for businesses and economies, and nurtures the local and global natural environment. Our team’s commitment to research and discussion, in synthesis with cutting-edge techniques and technologies, keeps us at the forefront of innovation. Our projects are carefully tailored to the demands and opportunities that each particular client, community, and ecology presents.
