  • Project Date

The project with an area of 53.7m2 façade facing Southeast is located in a densely populated residential area, surrounded by 3-4-story row houses with dense density. The spatial layout is based on a careful analysis of microclimate conditions, ensuring proper ventilation and lighting for the activities taking place inside.
With a small width of only 3m, the functions are arranged on a separate floor to create a connection space through the atrium. The kitchen and dining room are lifted up to help free up the ground floor into a continuous and unlimited space. The master bedroom is arranged in a two-story connecting block in front. The study space is arranged. on top to create certain privacy.
In this house, we want to evoke an authentic living experience for a young family living in a typical Vietnamese urban townhouse. Airy, with a view throughout, the apartment still possesses a sense of privacy and safety when needed. As such, the house is a pure representation of the life of a young, creative, contemporary Vietnamese family.
