Located in Suoi Re, Luong Son, in the Hoa Binh province, the community house was erected against a picturesque scene, leaning against mountains and facing an incredible valley. Contextually aware of its surroundings, as well as the architectural typology of the Kinh and Muong people of the area, the interior of the structure is strikingly modern by comparison.
The overall space is organized in a chain, where the front space is an open courtyard, the main living space lies at the center and consists of connecting two floors. Upstairs one can find a teaching area, library and meeting areas. Overall, open space and programmatic flexibility were the focal points in determining the layout of the floor plan.
Built simply and economically with local materials, the ground floor was constructed with smoother stone, while bamboo doors cover passageways, and a bamboo ceiling warms the space. A rammed-soil wall with heavy stones supports the structure, and the bamboo roof frame has been adorned with dense palm leaves, providing protection from above.
