This Vietnamese Townhouse Brings the Brick Element in Harmony With Nature

hpa

Vietnam is not a country that is known for its modern urban buildings, but things are starting to change. H&P Architects designed a uniquely shaped townhouse that brings together two elements that are opposites: brick and nature. The townhouse is filled with small holes on its outside, which leaves space for plants to breathe and get they sun they need in order to grow. In this first layer, plants are located and in the second layer we can see the interior spaces of the house, where the decor has been kept quite simple and minimalistic. The idea was to build a house that will remind the first houses that cavepeople built.

The first layer of brick is made that way so that plants can found their way to air and sun.

The building looks even more stunning during the night time

The building comes in complete contract with the rest of the houses and creates a very positive and refreshing aura.

Brick has been a familiar and traditional element of Vietnam for a long time now and architects and designers have found a way to reintroduce it to the world.

The building is meant to support the life of indoor plants

Its symmetry might by unconventional, but it sure looks good to the eye.
