The design of Galaxy Residence was strongly influenced by the new urban aspect of the area and the Mekong River. Apartment living is in itself an urban act, but with its close proximity to the Mekong, we chose to offer every opportunity to benefit from this unique position. As such, most apartment units have been designed to reach out in the form balcony and window views of the surroundings.
The interior design of the apartments has been designed to allow space to flow and connect with each other through the use of screening and intersecting surfaces. The natural stone cladding on the exterior is not just the interesting face of the building but it also helps to unify the shop houses and the apartments together, as well as offering a deeper connection to the interior spaces as it appears on both sides of the wall. Together with our client we created very articulated floor plans and carefully selected materials that both reflect the urban and natural aspects of the design – following our concept statement: “urban living on the edge of nature”.
