RETREAT HOME - Ho Viet Vinh Architect & Partners

Nestled quietly under the canopy of the coconut forest swaying in the gentle breeze, the simple house comes into existence thanks to the reflections of the dawn sunlight. The house has a simple modern look, inheriting the shape of a traditional house with 3 compartments and 2 wings, with a large veranda surrounding it. The veranda is a transitional space and acts as a climate regulator for the whole house. Not only that, but it is also a place where countless activities connect people with the surrounding open space. The rooms all open to the garden and the doorways pull the garden into its deepest recesses. The nuanced transitions of time and space also take place in the cut of this patio.

Solid and rough are the emotions of BAOLOC. Spatial topography consists of interlaced hills, layers hidden under layers of cold pine forests. In that autumn silence, the clouds are the witch who transforms to soften the rough, dry and cold.

“Following the wind, the stream flows in all directions,
 
The foggy road is dotted with flying dew drops.
 
Love is drunk at night in dreams,
 
Filled with the call of the human realm.”

Next project | Zen Garden

Zen garden carries the breath of nature, located in the coniferous forest, receiving the morning sun, immersed in the coolness of the beach. People move in free space without being constrained by position and frame of reference. The displacement no longer depends on the inside, the lower, the high and the low. Heaven and earth, plants, flowers, people become one, each step carries the breath of the pure land.

Next project | Maison de Corail


Maison de Corail

A PRIVATE CONTEMPORARY ART HOUSE, THE MOST MAGNIFICENT, STATE-OF-THE-ART AND UNIQUE ONE IN SOUTHERN VIETNAM.

The concept of the project is a hybrid space, there is no determination or boundaries. We want a space that integrates botany, meditation and art where people can feel free to take care of themselves, slowly with relaxation. Using nostalgia and natural matter, crafted by artisan hands, paintings that desire to finding beauty in imperfection but real environments. The facade make by breezeway blocks to allow sun and wind in, to avoid artificial air conditioning systems. The general purpose is to create a minimalist lifestyle in which a slow passing of time. The lava stones react shades to the sunlight movement along the day. Various forms are manifested by the light gradually moving. A spiral staircase along the courtyard has a rendered banister and concrete treads. It leads up to an open art workshop and meditation space.



“Ẩn tàng chốn lạ mà quen
Lá chen mây trắng hoa chèn sắc hương
Ngõ vương ánh nắng qua đường
Yêu thương đọng lại khu vườn ngày xưa.”



“Strange but familiar hidden place

Leaves insert flowers into white clouds

Light alley across the street

Love leaves the old garden. ”

Next project | The PIG House

Concept design

Ancient Greek legend has it that the pig was the favorite animal of Demeter – goddess of crops and farming on earth. This was the holiest god for the Greeks. Since ancient times, people have used pigs to sacrifice this goddess. The magical transformation that turns humans into pigs appears in many myths, such as in Homer’s epic Odysseus. In this story, the crew of the hero ship was turned into pigs by the goddess Circe. Pig is one of the 12 animals that represent the 12-year cycle of Dizhi of China, Vietnam, Japan, Korea, North Korea and many other countries in Asia. It is associated with the Zodiac Pig. Those who believe in Chinese astrology have always attached pig characteristics to people born in the year of the Pig. Those born in this year are often considered lucky and have a prosperous and leisurely life. PIG House is life within and beyond the form of this animist.

Next project | PHU DOAN PLAZA

Phu Doan Plaza in existing condition

Phu Doan Plaza at Committee Popular of Thua Thien Hue province (also called City Hall) is a lively and contemporary embodiment as a “Hue ancient capital”. Today the Plaza is an inclusive hub of Hue’s life outdoors but for decades this was not the case. Prior to renovation Plaza was an uninviting and inaccessible maze of raised and sunken terraces, hidden passageways, and gloomy malnourished trees. The opportunity for change raised the park, both physically and metaphorically, to the prominence of its location at the foot of Hue City Hall. The Plaza provides universal accessibility by bringing the entire site to street level, and encourages use throughout the day. The entire Plaza, with its generous lawn, interactive fountain, café, and ample seating amidst green groves of native plantings, are all built atop the nexus of Hue City center’s multi-modal transit system and acts as a connective gateway to all neighborhoods. The park functions as a 8.190 sq.m creating a welcome all-season spot for relaxation and public recreation.

The interlocking rock columns are arranged naturally,

Shoulder and shoulders depict rapids,

Standing likes the shape of the mountain,

Look down at the waves of the sacred place.

Next project | Thien An Community PARK

THIEN AN HILL

COMMUNITY PARK represents the exchange process between communities coming to a new land to settle down and live. They bring a lot of knowledge, customs and ambitions to create a life in the new land. Community is the space for them to open up, exchange, learn and grow. The process of agglomeration, interference and experimentation between communities has molded a new character for the culture of the historic ancient capital.

The park recreates the process of community formation through 5 main spaces:

  • Meeting space;
  • Exchange space;
  • Agglomeration space;
  • Experimental space;
  • Performance space;

Each space has a form and function that is reproduced through each stage of the process of community and cultural exchange.

VOICES of NATURE

The melodious reverberation of the mountains and forests,

Clouds cover the rising sun,

I silently curled up in the wind,

Absorb the mist of the dawn light.

ÂM VANG NÚI RỪNG

Du dương vọng tiếng hoà ca rừng núi,

Mây ngập tràn che khuất mặt trời lên,

Ta lặng im cuộn mình trong làn gió,

Men hơi sương ngút ngọn ánh bình minh.
