Home Project Located in Saigon , Ho Chi Minh | Vietnam

We'll show you a home project located in Vietnam, precisely in the area of ​​Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City). Houses owned by Julien Smith an architect and photographer France has a detailed design as follows:

An empty land of 4m*25m in the middle of a traditional Vietnamese plot has been chosen for him and his family to establish their own place and the studio as well. This house is a typical case in Vietnam where sites are narrow and long. This is an interesting “nha pho” (Vietnamese name for small and narrow city house) reference. This design could be qualified as a minimalist, modern tropical design while transposing the domestic Vietnamese architecture features. Volumes, open spaces, natural light were the first concerns. The main impressive feature of this house is the 5 meter high folding shutters louvers. “A challenge that we have overcome with the carpenter”. (except sanitary ware, light appliance and chairs, almost the entire house is costume made with local manufacturer). This unique element composes itself the entire façade and reaches all the expected functions: design – identity – solar control – privacy – security
