Construction management : Phan Thanh Kha Photos by Quang Trần These are two houses in one land and we intentionally make it like one house. These are for a 3-generations family with 7 members. It’s built on a 650sqm land far from city centre. The owner lived in apartments in many years – where all family member can see and hear each other everytime. When they have a chance to make a big house, they still want to keep that warmly feeling. And besides, they want their children live close the grandma and nature. For that reason, we created a large space in between the bedrooms so that everyone can connect with each other. We chose a simple form with orange color to make it stand out against the green background of the plants. We use a type of traditional tiles which is popular in Vietnam and make it different. This type of tiles is made from clay and is often used for paving. But we cut it and use it for wall. This causes the wall to have a natural color change. Inside, we make big and empty spaces with wide view. The concrete curved roof make inside is like a naughty but interesting contrast from the outside. And also, It helps the sunlight become softer when going inside from the top.

We encourage designers and architects to share their best projects with the rest of the world so as to inspire the next generation and gain global recognition.
