Built at the edge of Cuc Phuong National Park within lush green forests, limestone mountains and natural water surfaces, the construction had outperformed nearly 1,000 competitive submissions of more than 500 architecture enterprises from over 20 countries and territories to be awarded such a prestigious prize.

The Vedana restaurant which is designed by renown Vietnamese architect had won the Grand Prize of the International Yuan Ye Architecture Awards 2021. 

The bamboo work is among three winning projects of the prestigious Grand Prizes (Group B - Architectural Projects) which are The Big House designed by Frankie Pappas; the Potato Head Studios by David Gianotten and Ken Fung; and Vedana Restaurant by Vo Trong Nghia.    

Located inside a resort complex of the same name in the northern province of Vietnam, the Venada Restaurant had won the Grand Prize of the 11th International Yuan Ye Architecture Awards.

The Vedana restaurant is part of a newly built luxurious Vedana resort. 
Similar to some award-winning architectures of Vo Trong Nghia, the restaurant was built on a peninsular of a giant natural lake in the locality, covering 1,050 square metres and stands 15.85 metres tall.

It is built from 36 bamboo frames that form a three-storey dome with the largest roof radius of 18.3 metres.

Water plays an important role in regulating the temperature for the construction as well as offering great natural experiences for diners. It is also a reservoir that stores rainwater running down from the nearby mountains, that will be used for irrigating the whole tourism site in a total area of 16.4 hectare-large.
