The improvised balconies were created by attaching two spaces inside the house that protruded outwards. The house also had two facade layers, including trees and glass doors, both ensuring ventilation and protecting from the weather. hot weather.
The project was designed by Trinhvieta-Architects in a densely populated urban area in Ho Chi Minh City with the desire to create as much space as possible, providing an interesting living atmosphere. The architect’s idea was to rearrange the allowable space by taking two internal spaces from the main block, dividing them into several smaller blocks and attaching them back to make a balcony. In this way, they created an empty space that allows wind and natural light to flow to every nook and cranny of the house while keeping the required space. The house is 5 floors high and consists of 7 rooms, including 2 atrium rooms with private courtyards. These 7 rooms embrace 2 spaces inside with some balconies facing the outside. The interior void provides a private courtyard, laundry balcony and ventilation shaft while the exterior balcony with double-layer tile creates a “dual leather” facade that protects the home from tropical weather. The “dual leather” facade is combined with two layers, featuring glazed openings, hollow bricks in the balcony and greenery. This facade creates a sunshade, reduces heat radiation and provides a relaxing atmosphere. The design team tried to capture the feeling of a tropical home by creating some form of shading from tiled roofs, hollow brick walls or greenery… to reduce solar radiation and provide no air. Comfortable relaxing space where natural wind blows in. The location of the balcony and the studied trees is random and improvised, which makes the house a bit in harmony with the surrounding context. Through this project, the architect wishes to propose a solution for a life in a high-density tropical urban area, meeting the needs of space while still providing an interesting living environment “close to nature”. of course”. pear spring (According to the ArchDaily )
