Building Extension of RMIT University - Located at District 7, Ho Chi Minh City


The second academic building is being developed on the the Saigon Campus to extend the capacity of the campus and support the growth demands of the campus.

The building forms part of the campus masterplan, integrating with the first academic building. A mixture of general teaching spaces, staff accommodation and specialist facilities are catered for in the facility.

It is intended that AB2 will primarily provide a series of teaching and learning spaces for all disciplines currently catered for in Vietnam. However the building also must provide a series of specialist learning spaces, mainly focussed around digital design/media and communication.

Kitchen design with traditional style.

  Kitchen is an important part in the layout of an apartments, townhouse or a villa. Kitchen design can not separate from interior design of a house or an apartment. So if we decide a style for general space, then all functional areas will follow and develop base on that style.

Characteristics of a classic style kitchen is easy to see that cabinets are made of natural wood or artificial wood. Kitchen cabinets and hanging cabinets are divided into regular rhythm and harmony. We also see some decorative details as wooden cornice with crown molding, trim molding panel for cabinets ...
