Ha Long Villa by VTN Architects
March 27, 2021 - Ha Long City
VTN Architects has built a house on Vietnam's scenic Ha Long Bay with trees growing through its concrete walls.
The Ho Chi Minh City studio, which won Architect of the Year at last year's Dezeen Awards, wanted to give residents the experience of living in nature.
"We have designed a sustainable home that exists in harmony with the surrounding environment and seeks to become part of its landscape. The main concept of the house is to create space where people can live in a forest." explained by VTN Architects.
VTN Architects hopes this house can serve as a reminder about the importance of maintaining a balance between building and landscape.
"Due to the simplicity in the concept, the idea of 'House for Trees' can be multiplied almost anywhere in tropical climate regions. The aim of the series is to bring green spaces back into the city." said VTN Architects.
