Gallery: ‘Bamboo Wing’ is a Stunning Vietnamese Restaurant Made Entirel...

We've showcased the majestic work of Vietnamese bamboo masters Vo Trong Nghia before - and one of their latest and most striking projects is a restaurant and events center called Bamboo Wing. Situated in the province of Vinh Phuc, the building elegantly combines handcrafting skills with local sustainable materials to create a mysterious environment that is immersed in water.

To enter Bamboo Wing, customers walk through a series of stepping-stones surrounded by water and growing bamboo. Entirely made of the fast-growing, renewable plant, the open-air Vietnamese 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 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.
