Constrained by a limited budget and a small plot, MM++ Architects designed a tranquil home in Ho Chi Minh City's hectic Go Vap district. In contrast with the outside world populated by tuk tuks, hooting cars and general mayhem, the home on an 8 x 22 meter plot in a dense residential neighborhood has all the qualities of a verdant tropical dwelling - except with finer furnishings and greater comfort!
This beautiful home is located on a small plot in Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam
While the outdoors is hectic and sooty, inside is calm and bright
A garden in between the open plan entrance and back bedrooms brings the country into the city
The garden is planted with bamboo and other tropical plants
Louvers in the facade promote natural ventilation, like a light jungle breeze!
The furnishings are contemporary but simple
The home accommodates three children and their parents, who are in a suite on the first floor
A roof overhang shades the home from the hot and muggy Viet Nam summers (which never seem to end.)
