Next project | RETREAT HOME

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.

Cam Pha coal mine was established by the French in 1886 with the name Société Francais des Charbonneges du Tonkin under King Tu Duc. The stratigraphic structure of the coal mine is deepened in the shape of deep underground terraces. The coal seams gradually revealed themselves in the light that cut through the valley. The jet black color of greed mixed with the reddish brown color of the earth and the dry dust in the air: all blended to create abstract colors tinged with depth. The project is inspired by the block of coal seams that overlap in opposite directions. An inverted image of the coal seam structure to represent the remaining void. Construction materials are taken from coal seams to form stacked bricks. Space, materials and scenery seem to blend together to create the mood of the miners.

Next project | Maison de Corail

Maison de Corail


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. ”
