HCMCA 5-story house on a 72-square-meter plot of land in Tan Phu district has been renovated to serve as both office and accommodation.
The front of the house is in the form of a block cut at the corner, creating a new impression of the building and providing interesting views while indoors and looking out. The “doorways” just enough in the corner also help the upper rooms to ventilate without the sun and rain, the opposite neighbors are also difficult to see.
In addition, limiting the hollow part of the balcony and using glass umbrellas, large doors to divide the space, making the bedroom and balcony look like a serial, creating a more spacious feeling.
In the house, the two lower floors are used as the homeowner’s office, the upper three floors are the living space of a family of five. The skylight and staircase are located in the center, connecting and making the house airy.
The third floor arranges living room and dining room. The fourth and fifth floors are for bedrooms. Thanks to the cut corners outside the facade, the bedrooms are bright, overlooking the green space while ensuring privacy.
The whole house is painted white, creating a spaciousness for the space and emphasizing the warm color of wooden furniture. The curves are included to “soften” the building and to be consistent with the facade.
The terrace is the homeowner’s favorite space. This area is designed as a miniature cafe, with water surface and garden, helping homeowners relax after hard working hours.
