To enter Bamboo Wing, customers walk through a series of stepping-stones surrounded by water and growing bamboo [1]. Entirely made of the fast-growing, renewable plant, the open-air Vietnamese [2] restaurant is airy, cool and shaped like a bird’s wings. The sculptural columns support the angled roof, making a firm statement on how versatile and strong this material can be.

Vo Trong Nghia designed the space so visitors could enjoy a meal amid the lush green surroundings while being sheltered by a long curvy bamboo shelter. Located in Vinh Phuc [3] province, near the city of Hanoi, the restaurant is shaped like a half-moon and is entirely surrounded by water. Vo Trong Nghia architects work bamboo to perfection, creating streamlined, sustainable and magical shelters that stand in harmony with nature.
