Nha Nhim Homestay by A+ Architects

Home > Winners > #121831


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Nha Nhim

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Homestay

INSPIRATION:
During the field trips to Dalat, we had to drive around to listen to local stories and what the local resource offered us. We found so much potential in waste materials from the area. Therefore we decided to collect and upcycle them. For instance, waste materials from local textile factories were classified and recycled into different parts. External wood cells were reused in ceiling modules and fences were made of tree branches.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Nha Nhim Homestay was built in Da Lat City. It was located on a slope of a mountainous area with deserted scenery from the surrounding neighborhood. This project was a story of giving so-called “garbages” a second chance. An architect’s adventure of creating something meaningful from trash.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The purpose of the project was a building not only stay but also business. The project included the main house and additional tubins. One of the most difficult we have to solve was the weather which was really cold in Da Lat. We created a big slope roof to avoid cold wind in the night but still received cool breezes in hot weather during the day. Moreover, we divided the project into several small elements to have good ventilation, natural sun light, reducing the use of artificial energy, causing harm to the environment.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started construction & operation in 2017 in Da Lat, Viet Nam

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Barks, branches, test concrete blocks were the materials that we gave them a new life in this project.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Site area: 290m2 Floor area ratio: 0.8 Total build up area: 232m2 Total site coverage: 59,7%

TAGS:
Residential Architecture, Homestay, Recycle, Waste Material, Da Lat, Viet Nam, Built Project

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Although we exploited a lot of things inside, we still kept the harmony with the context by using the traditional materials. Instead of neighboring buildings, Nha Nhim Homestay was lifted entire all of the elements to solve the problems such as: expanded the living space, created green space and circulation space for the narrow area. It also opened the view to the valley, not prevented by near buildings.

CHALLENGE:
The site challenged the architects with its narrow and prolonging parameters, where the length significantly overshadowed the 8-meter width. The terrain is extremely bad with undulating, uneven terrain, weak soil, which can cause landslides.
