Text description provided by the architects. When we took on a project to design it, there was an outbreak of the Corona virus. Closed schools and entertainment spaces reinforced social isolation. Housing spaces are beginning to take on the task of serving people more, with more difficulty than narrow residential spaces located within large cities. We put the issue of priority space for young children, the space to relax is also more interested.
The Villa City Project is located in District 7, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. House for husband and wife and 2 children. With an area of 117m2 and a limited investment budget, we consider organizing a reasonable living, work and rest space and alleviate the inhibitory mentality by being restricted from leaving the house when the situation can have long-term social isolation.
Narrowing the living room, eliminating bedrooms, making bunk beds for children to share a room creates plenty of space for planting trees, swimming pools and tree houses for babies to play with. Helps release energy for babies.
The children’s bedroom and parent’s bedroom have connecting doors and are connected to the balcony to create a connected space long enough for the children to run around comfortably, the bedroom is designed with a large glass wall overlooking the greenery and receives natural light from the floor pockets to make the bedroom airy, freeing up vision.
