Situated in Tứ Liên, Tây Hồ, Hanoi, Vietnam, 7×18 House (2013) by AHL Architects Associates | The Hardt
Situated in Tứ Liên, Tây Hồ, Hanoi, Vietnam, 7×18 House (2013) by AHL Architects Associates. Rooms, space, garden are separated according to the vertical and horizontal axis. All would create an empty/solid combination in the bulk of the house. Every place in the house would make the best of natural light and natural ventilation, which is a good idea for electricity savings in the daytime. Sunlight intensity in the summer can also be controlled by the steel fillets in the front and on the roof.
With the distinctive position in the area for traditional trees such as Peach and Kumquat, the design group has saved the central area of the house for these trees. Together with the fish tank, they make up an interesting and relaxing space. Naked concrete, ceramic bricks, patterned porcelain bricks and raw wood for interior furniture are the main materials exploit throughout the project. All of them are economical but are processed carefully and suitably for their functions, which brings a new breeze to conventional materials.
