Maison T in Hanoi is a cozy hideaway for a young man that returned to his hometown after years of living abroad. An unassuming perforated brick gate marks the entrance to the plot with the house withdrawn to the back to create a green space. Architecture firm Nghia-Architect designed the residence as a series of flexible, interconnected spaces built from natural and rustic materials.
The house offers a high degree of privacy and functions as a relaxing environment hidden in an alleyway in Hanoi. Quiet and open, the small residence offers all the amenities of a town house, and includes a beautiful garden space.
Flexible partitions visually connect the different spaces within the house, and provide views of the garden. The garden looks and functions as an integral part of the house, and acts as an acoustic barrier between the street and the private spaces.
