Scale and Location

Nestled in the heart of Ba Son, District 1 - the city's "diamond" district - The Sun Tower, a 55-story architectural masterpiece by Masterise Homes, is identified as one of the city’s largest office complexes. It offers 6-star amenities and branded residences, providing ultra-luxurious experiences exclusively for the elite.

The prime and unparalleled location of The Sun Tower is further distinguished by the underground passage of Metro Line 1 across the square, playing a strategic role in fostering the development of the city's center alongside the bustling Saigon River urban corridor. In terms of façade design, the project asserts its iconic value with stylized, terraced steps between floors. Constructed by BM Windows, the entire building features premium façades and artistic LED lighting, promising a premier living space at the heart of the city.

Project Design

Inspired by Terraced Fields

With bold lines, robust volumes, and luxurious materials, the 55-story, 240-meter-tall The Sun Tower exemplifies modern architecture infused with cultural inspiration from the terraced fields. The design features staggered levels that mimic the layers of a terraced landscape.

BM Windows' Façade Solution

The unique structural form of the building presents numerous challenges in façade construction and engineering. BM Windows has developed a solution employing a unitized system for the tower's façade. At transition floors, a combination of strip windows and decorative aluminum cladding creates a staggered effect. Additionally, BM Windows has implemented façade lighting on the base block and networking floors, promising to offer unique lighting displays.

Complexities in Construction Methods

Networking

The Networking Zone, spanning floors 36 to 44, features a complex, tiered design using the Strip Windows system and Fins Sunshade, echoing the terraced fields effect. The design includes alternating protrusions and recessions, posing challenges in construction management. It requires the project management team to maintain detailed plans for coordinating with various trades and contractors throughout the project. BM Windows employs a spider crane technique in this high-altitude, windy environment, ensuring absolute safety control.

Canopy

The canopy of The Sun Tower, slanted at 60 degrees and rising 22 meters, adds a modern and impressive look to the project, completed to high aesthetic standards.

Unitized Components of the Project

Unitized Combined with Fins

The integration of the unitized system with fins creates an optimal synergy, enhancing the value and style of the project. This unitized approach ensures consistency and precision during installation while enhancing the building's aesthetic and performance qualities. The incorporation of fins not only emphasizes a strong visual component but also improves the uniformity and thermal efficiency of the structure.

Floors 54 & 55

The design on floors 54 and 55 of The Sun Tower is particularly notable, featuring a stick system combined with vertical louvers at an elevation of 240 meters. This segment demands specialized construction equipment and rigorous safety measures due to the significant wind pressure.

BM Windows has implemented a façade solution using the unitized system for the main tower, with strip windows and decorative aluminum cladding at transition levels to produce a tiered effect.
