Hilton Opera Hanoi is a landmark in the city of Hanoi. Completed in the 1980's the property enjoys the location next to the historic Hanoi Opera House. The Hilton operated hotel required improvements and refurbishments. AFW's scope was to develop the internal space planning and to develop the external architecture to integrate the new requirements. The design 'turned' the hotel to address the Opera House enabling the main entrance to address the Opera House and the F&B outlets to provide views across to its historic neighbour.
The extension to the hotel is in the form of a conservatory with the dia-grid lattice glazing and curved form offering a contemporary contrast to the neo-classic colonial styled hotel building.
