Laboratory / Office

Acecook Vietnam Head Office

CONCEPT

Acecook Co., Ltd., a manufacturer and seller of instant noodles and soups, commissioned this project for the company’s new Vietnam Office, which supervises its overseas offices. Acecook generates more than half the instant noodle sales in Vietnam, and this building forms part of the company’s endeavors to propose new value to the market. Creating "an environment where employees can enjoy the work more and gain greater satisfaction from it" was the concept underlying the structure. The entrance’s interior design evokes elements of cup noodles, highlighting the company’s corporate identity. A sense of depth is felt from a facade designed by combining small lattices and glass, and an open-ceiling space connects all floors in the building on the facade side. Workplaces on each floor are thus linked under soft natural light with the intention to promote communication within the company.
