Son La Dome - the domed house in the middle of the forest with peaceful space is the construction using bamboo as the main material to make five dome structures with different heights inspired by the surrounding high mountains. a horizon that harmonizes with the charming landscape in Son La city.
The largest domed house (283m2) has a height of 15.6m used as a cafe. Two domed houses - each house 227m2 with a height of 12.5m and two other houses - each house is 164m2, height of 10.5m is used as a waiting space and reception hall for the hall.
These domed houses are also multi-purpose space for local organizations to perform outdoor events, meetings, banquets ... Immersed in it is the natural sound from the waterfall and the small stream running through between the hall and the dome. Amidst this poetic green scenery, this place becomes a highlight for guests from the entrance hall.
Binh House - The house is one of a series of tree house projects with the aim of contributing to greening urban areas in the context of green trees per capita in big cities in Vietnam is very low.
The garden is interspersed between the spaces, deviating vertically, combining the design of rooms with two sides of sliding glass doors. This idea not only improves microclimate, but also creates a sense of spaciousness, but also increases the interaction between family members.
Using sustainable materials such as natural stone, wood, bare concrete combined with microclimate solutions to enhance ventilation and natural light, the building is solidly built to reduce operating costs and ensure maintenance.
"Bamboo house" has been designed to create a comfortable living space despite a limited area. The land is small and narrow, it is only possible to take natural light and ventilation through the front and rear facades. Tree basins are randomly arranged on the front facade, creating a more attractive and welcoming entrance.
With a unified design language, besides growing bamboo on the front, bamboo is also used as a formwork for concrete walls of tree tanks. Bamboo textures on concrete surfaces help reduce the hard and heavy dryness of traditional concrete walls and thus improve the overall aesthetic quality of the house.
This project provides a solution to create a comfortable open living space and is surrounded by greenery in a very small and small location. It not only meets functional and aesthetic needs but also connects people to each other and more importantly connects people with nature.
Digital Vo Trong Nghia and his colleagues are developing a series of housing projects, "House for trees", creating green spaces in cramped neighborhoods. As the most recent project in this series of works, the paving floor strives to bring the green back to the city and create a close connection between people and nature.
The house is located in a neatly planned urban area, where people build all height to allow and maximize living space by reducing green space. With the idea of bringing green plants into the house, the designer wants Each house will take the position as a small park in a dense neighborhood.
The house is designed for a typical Vietnamese family with three generations. Each individual function is placed in concrete blocks and randomly stacked. The concrete floors across each floor are the fields for planting trees. These semi-outdoor spaces are the living room and the dining room, which is the space for people to gather.
Dong Anh housing project is located in 800m2 land area, construction area of 500m2, height of 2 floors. The landlord is a large family, so the requirements for private spaces and bedrooms are still in need of ensuring common spaces connecting family members.
The house is designed with sloping roof, suitable for Vietnam's tropical monsoon climate. The wall of earth was built 350mm thick, built 2 stories high, no concrete columns. Many types of soil create different earth colors, making the project a new and different appearance. After being collected, the soil is filtered, grinded, then mixed with cement, additives and then put into formwork and compacted system. The result is smooth, beautiful aesthetic walls, high bearing capacity.
The whole project achieved the novelty in materials, modernity, convenience in function, friendliness in landscape and architectural style.
