Located in the center of Ho Chi Minh city in Vietnam, Binh Thanh House was designed for two families; a couple in their sixties, their son, his wife and a child.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe plot has a bilateral character, one is facing to a noisy and dusty street in a typical developing and urbanizing area in the city and one is very close to a canal and Saigon Zoo with plenty of greenery.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiAgainst a backdrop of this duality of its setting, the concept of the house is to accommodate two different lifestyles in a tropical climate; a modern and well-tempered lifestyle with mechanical equipments such as air-conditioners, and a natural and traditional lifestyle, utilizing natural lighting and ventilation with water and greenery.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe house is composed of two different spaces positioned alternately. Spaces for modern lifestyle are allocated in three floating volumes wrapped by concrete pattern blocks. And the spaces between these three volumes are widely open to the exterior and allocated for the natural lifestyle where the residents enjoy wind, sunlight, green and water.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThree volumes are shifted back and forth to bring natural light into the in-between spaces, as well as to create small gardens on each floor. The bottoms of the volumes become the ceilings for the in-between spaces. These surfaces are designed with various curved shapes, providing each in-between space with different lighting effects.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiBedrooms and other small rooms are contained in the floating semi-closed volumes to enhance security and privacy. On the other hand, the open in-between spaces are designed to be independent living spaces for two families.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiPattern blocks, which used to be a popular shading device in Vietnam to get natural ventilation, are made of pre-cast concrete with 60cm width and 40cm height. It not only prevents the harsh sunlight and heavy rain but also enhances the privacy and the safety.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiWhile this house looks different from the stereotypical townhouses in Ho Chi Minh City, all the architectural solutions are derived from the local lifestyle and wisdom. The House offers an interpretation of the ecological lifestyle in the modern tropical city. It is where modern and natural life are compatible with each other.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessResidence Bemmel / Maxim Winkelaar + Bob RondaySelected ProjectseVolo 2014 Skyscraper CompetitionEvent Share “COPY” Binh Thanh House / Vo Trong Nghia Architects + Sanuki + NISHIZAWAARCHITECTSSave this projectSaveBinh Thanh House / Vo Trong Nghia Architects + Sanuki + NISHIZAWAARCHITECTS CopyAbout this officeNISHIZAWAARCHITECTSOfficeFollowSanukiOfficeFollowVTN ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBinh Thanh DistrictWoodHousesOn InstagramPublished on August 23, 2013Cite: “Binh Thanh House / Vo Trong Nghia Architects + Sanuki + NISHIZAWAARCHITECTS” 23 Aug 2013.
