Description:

The house locates at a peaceful uncrowded neighborhoods in Binh Chanh Distinct, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. After 10 years working and saving, the couples bought a 7m x 16m (23ft x 52.5ft) ground. They wanted to have a comfortable house for kids: 3 rooms for family members, 1 room for grandparents’ visit, garage, and functionalities (working room, altar, etc.). However, urban planning requires to leave 2.5m (8ft) front and 2m (6.6ft) behind the house. This requirement makes the buildable area a little small in the comparison with expectation of investors. The given solution is to build interleaving spaces, which have different foolproof, placed around a central vertical space. This solution creates voids and connections between rooms.

Seen from outside, the house was impressive with lines which is simple but strong enough to combine cubes as a sculpture. Lot of squares, with different sizes and free layout, join with graceful greenery to attract people and make them curious about entering inside. The squares become highlight across from front door to the central block. They do not only get natural light for the house but also created aesthetic effect at night.
