Created with the motto that “everyone around the world can be connected into a big family,” the Ccasa hostel was designed with a sense of openness and transparency that puts the spotlight on the shared living spaces, rather than the sleeping quarters. The three shipping containers, which house the beds, serve as a colorful backdrop painted in the primary colors of blue, red, and yellow. Each container contains a different bedroom layout, from multiple bunk beds to a family-style room with a queen bed. The bathrooms are housed in a “washing block” in a separate three-story structure next to the shipping containers. The kitchen facilities are located on the first floor in between the containers and the entrance.

Natural ventilation is key to the design of Ccasa hostel as a means to mitigate Nha Trang’s muggy and tropical weather. Instead of stuffy corridors, open metal bridges that wrap around a tall tree link the container bedrooms. An accessible terrace roof offers large hammocks and city views. A pergola with climbing vegetation wraps around the hostel to add an extra skin of greenery that protects the interior from direct sunlight and helps create a cooling microclimate. Encaustic cement tiles, old wood windows, and flat winnowing baskets were also upcycled as decorations, solar shades, and room dividers.
