[Photos] Vo Trong Nghia Transforms Rest Stop Into Bamboo Oasis

Thirty kilometers from Hanoi, local architect and global sensation Vo Trong Nghia recently completed another project fashioned almost entirely out of bamboo.

Roc Von Restaurant, located at a rest stop on the road between Hoa Binh and the capital, sits just below the road overlooking a natural lake, reports ArchDaily. Its pavilion-like covering makes for an intimate semi-outdoor dining area whose 12 arched bamboo supports curve around the water in a half-circle.

Though the structure isn't particularly elaborate or as impressive as their green-roofed school or bamboo-clad factory, Vo Trong Nghia Architects manages to once again pull of a simple, sophisticated design using local materials and paying homage to local culture.
