In the Vietnamese tradition plants are a very important element for the house, so the architects of Vo Trong Nghia , a Vietnamese architecture studio, have connected the tradition of its people with modern and contemporary design. The result is a house that has nothing to envy to the most avant-garde western and Japanese projects.
Both the facade of the house and its back are crossed by large cement planters that create a kind of plant wall that protects the house from the sun.
This double green screen prevents the warm rays of the Vietnamese sun from entering the house, creating a fresh, intimate and relaxed space.
The interior of the house follows the current currents and its wooden surfaces together with the luminous intimacy create a very suitable living space to live in the warm Ho Chi Minh City.
The house has a width of four meters and its shape is that of the typical Vietnamese tower houses, has three floors high and reaches 20 m high. They are the traditional measures corresponding to this type of housing.
The asymmetric distribution of the planters allows a better graduation of the solar impact while greatly improving the design of the house. The bedroom, a dream, is modern and fresh thanks to the use of plants.
The roof is formed by a set of garden and skylights. The garden helps to isolate the home from heat and the skylights allow the passage of light so that the house is cozy despite the isolation.
The bathroom follows the style of the whole house and is lustful and enviable with that green curtain that in this case brings privacy to the bathroom.
