Inauguration of Supreme Court building in Vietnam
Design, general planning and implementation completed in record time

At the end of October 2020, the new headquarters building of the Vietnamese Supreme People's Court was inaugurated in Hanoi. The celebration ceremony was attended by the Chief Justice, Nguyen Hoa Binh, the Chairman of the National Assembly, Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan, and Vietnam’s Deputy Prime Minister, Truong Hoa Binh. Collaborating in a joint venture with the Vietnamese company Coninco, Inros Lackner Vietnam took on the role of General Planner for the project. The new building, constructed on an area of ​​6,417 m2, was completed in a record construction time of only 399 days. The total cost of the six-storey building with its additional four basement levels is approximately 30 million euros.

The court building was designed in a contemporary "new classical architecture" style considering its historical significance and the character of the district. The new building is adjacent to the old, historic Palais de Justice with its French colonial architecture. The two structures together form a harmonious architectural ensemble with a green inner courtyard in which the balance between old and new is expressed in space and form.

The building was awarded the title “Building of high quality” by Vietnam’s Ministry of Construction. Responsible for the design are Torsten Illgen (Inros Lackner Vietnam) und Nguyen Dang Quang (Coninco).
