The space is separated into different layers with a homogeneous wash stone (granite) material inside and outside, blurring the boundaries, only the subject and the atmosphere surrounding the subject form solid. Calculation of the space by the purpose of use and each activity that takes place.
Architecture has a special material relationship with human life, as a cover and foundation for the life that unfolds around it. A programmatic project, extracted From the perception of the interaction between people and the city. That is the presence in the midst of other appearances, the smoothness, and the need not to rely on the ability to express the material.
"The city - the way it is -is all we have”, is all we want to attend on this project. The ambiguity of definitions, ambiguity in the experience of Dimension and Proportion of space, and usage. A space constructed with a specific function, but able to serve many different functions, a neutral scene, activated by the user.

23o5studio is an architectural studio based in HCMC, Vietnam. With a diversity in projects, 23o5studio thoughtfully establishes interesting, comfortable and personalized experiences for users. In the process of architectural creation, 23o5studio always observes and applies familiar elements in local architecture. The philosophy that promotes peace and silence creates architectural spaces that have a better connection between human with nature and with their own self.
