Designed by a21studio, this house is inspired by narrow alleyways in Saigon(Ho Chi Minh City) which confusing but have a peaceful and friendly atmosphere. Like the real alleyways, Saigon House has a narrow space with high walls that allow only a shaft of sunlight to light it for most of the day. This way, this house can have an open space with enough light but still protected from the hot sunlight during the day. With the great space allocation, this house feels wide enough in limited space. More description by a21studio:
Saigon has altered beyond recognition, for us, it is hard to call a development, it is, actually, a sequence of destructions: a destruction of culture, architecture values and especially, our beautiful memories of Saigon.
Saigon house, is a space dedicated to the old Saigon-Gia Dinh, typically “Van Duong” Palace, an architecture masterpiece of a Saigonese, Vuong Hong Sen; however, it has been undermined by human stupidity.
Saigon house, moreover, is our love to Saigon’s alleys, which are romantic with its rain and sunshine.
