The Vinacomin complex is composed of two closely connected, slim highrises as well as an adjacent five-storey base building. Beneath the buildings there is a five-storey parking garage. Each of the towers contains 35 storeys and is topped by a sky garden, pushing the overall building height to 167 m. The first two floors have a height of 8.40 m each, while the floors lying above have a height of 4.20 m each. On top of the highrise buildings a skygarden offers magnificent views of the surrounding city. The skygarden is enclosed by a highly transparent glass façade with a coating offering sun-protection. In front of the main entrance, there is a large canopy made of steel and glass.
