On the basis of an international competition, Inros Lackner Vietnam has been appointed as General Planner for the construction of Hanoi’s new courthouse. In the course of the competition, Inros Lackner submitted two designs which considered the identity and traditional values of the Vietnamese culture. The designs presented a modern work environment with clear, transparent spaces and courtrooms for around 600 judges. In consultation with the client, the People‘s Court of the City of Hanoi, a new neoclassical design was developed on this basis. The construction costs are estimated at USD 30 million, and the gross floor area is approximately 30,000 m2.
