     Located in a vibrant point in the centre of HCM City, Nguyen Van Binh Street is known as a place for booklovers and tourists. It's a small street facing Notre-Dame Cathedral and lined with large old trees. Therefore, creating new open space in harmony with the historical space is a problem not easy of solution. The solution we choose is not a classic space or an over-prominent space. It's space of succinctness which the bookshops are made of simple structural elements and book is what we want to emphasize in the street. In addition, with some coffee shops located along this street as well as the seating installed under the large old trees, we hope that Nguyen Van Binh Book Street is a great place for you to have a cup of coffee, sit and read some books in calm.
