A Home Renovation 10 Years in the Making
This 500-square meter family home is located in Ho Chih Minh City in Vietnam. It is actually a tall, slim building, narrow in width but tall in height— this type of architecture is typical of Vietnamese houses in the city until this day.
The owner had been planning to renovate her old childhood home for the longest time, and it is only until the year 2017 that this plan has taken shape. They wanted the redesign to strengthen family ties, for the family members to be close to each other, and for grandma to see her grandchilden grow up.
The red and teal painted staircases break up the stark white walls. A mishmash of contemporary and traditional Vietnamese elements surprisingly blend well, resulting to a home filled with love and so much character.
The architecture news site added that the new house was built with a “containing space” concept, meaning there are many smaller enclaves within the whole compound. These separate spaces are connected by ample skylights, corridors and green spaces.
