The hotel is a part of existing romance in the middle of chaotic Saigon. A pure white building with greenery windows in shapes and sizes. Lobbies, halls, balconies in the Myst evokes the spirit of the city.
The building contains 18 storeys including 2 basements. Throughtout the Myst, many different aspects of Saigon have been revealed: Lobby interior is manipulated by industrial details of demolished Bason – the precious 200-year historical ship yard. Forms, space and colours of the hall ways remind people about small alleies in the city. In a small area, a typical bedroom (considered as a small house) contains a conventional living room, study room, bed room, and a small green garden with bougainvilleas and typical tropical plants. The construction also used familiar materials which can be purchased at any material shop in the country. Beside morden conviniences, homeware in bedrooms are handmade products which could be easily found in the south of Vietnam. All together, they make a welcoming asmosphere to not only the ones who stay but also people walking through.
The Myst is a gratitude to our beloved Saigon.
