Get to know our team and founders

Van Aelst | Nguyen & Partners is an award-winning architect with offices in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, Vietnam. We recognise the need for a high level of commitment, innovative ideas, meticulous professional application, and flawless delivery and endeavour to deliver across each new partnership and project.

Our partners and clients inspire us to seek work that truly matters to the people, communities, ecosystems, societies, and environments they are in, and we maintain a calibre of design and work whose lifecycle will see its importance evolve and grow to different stakeholders over time.

With each new project, our first duty is to discern its value and societal significance today while keeping its future importance in mind.
