DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
House For Trees

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
House

INSPIRATION:
Under rapid urbanization, cities in Vietnam have diverged far from their origins as sprawling tropical forests. In Ho Chi Minh City, for example, only 0.25% area of the entire city is covered with greenery. An over-abundance of motorbikes causes daily traffic congestion as well as serious air pollution. Floods occur frequently, not only in rural areas but also in the cities like Ho Chi Minh City. In this context, new generations in urban area are losing their connection with nature.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
House for Trees aims to bring green space back into the city, where suffers from significant lack of green. The private house consists of five bamboo-textured concrete boxes designed as “pot” to plant trees on their top, featuring passive environmental strategy and local material thoroughly. “House for Trees” is also the name of following serial residential projects- whose concept can be multiplied anywhere, providing comprehensive solutions for sustainable development in tropical countries.
