a21house: Nature Inspired House in Vietnam

The a21 House created by and for a21 Studio Architecture is a quaint sanctuary in the urban setting of Hochiminh city, Vietnam. Positioned upon a small 40-square meter plot, the polygonal shape only offers a 1.5 meter wide street frontage. Situated at the end of a street, the site is bordered with the tall neighboring structures, making the task of generating an airy and illuminated home more challenging. To accomplish the challenge, a23 studio created a multilevel construct which uses natural sunlight, open spaces and skylights to create a relationship between nature and the building itself. The overall organic ambiance is amplified with simple white textured walls and hints of greenery growing indoors. The wood flooring dissolves into alternating sticks at the perimeter walls, allowing light to trickle downward and a tree to grow uninterrupted from ground level to the third level. What a beautiful space! Nice materials, nice flow and spatial arrangement. It kindly reminds of another Vietnam House featured before, perhaps it’s something basic to the Vietnamese culture. However, for us, the interstitial nature of the space generates a kind of invention that ultimately becomes its true nature. Wholly charming and captivating! [source]
