Ever wanted to relax under a bamboo thatched dome? All you need to do is pack your bags and visit Vietnam and take a look at the beautiful dome close to the Wind and Water Café located on an artificial lake near Hanoi.

Wind and Water Bar Vo Trong Nghia 1 537x383 Wind and Water Bar in Vietnam is an Eco friendly Bamboo Structure

Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants, and this could be the main reason for choosing the resourceful, light-weight and flexible bamboo as the main building material for this Wind and Water Bar.

The new bar is a complete ecological building, constructed without altering any of the natural surroundings whatsoever.

Vietnamese architect Vo Trong Nghia designed this building to have its natural glow without compromising on sustainability.

Natural ventilation and the use of cool fresh water from the artificial lake add to the many eco-friendly features this dome has to offer.

Low cost and versatile bamboo materials have been utilized in the construction due to the risk factors, such as flooding.

Steel is also used by the design team for construction apart from bamboo. Local meetings, concerts, ceremonies and other public events are held at the bar  , which has been gaining prominence in the urban locality.

Wouldn’t mind planning an event in this heavenly place, right?
