Private Residence

Long Thanh, Vietnam

2016

Our first project in SE Asia, this new home is set near the vibrant urban core of a peripheral city 40km East of Ho Chi Minh City in Southern Vietnam. When completed, the 4200 sf home will also include three on-site retail income properties for this entrepreneurial couple nearing retirement, and an empty nest. Given the near-Equatorial climate, the home has been oriented on the site to block the patio and garden from the intense sun, while still allowing maximum outdoor engagement. Additionally, city noise was given extensive consideration and strategies were employed to dissipate noise as much as possible. The home will have large open French doors to the patio and garden on the ground floor, and views across the city from the second floor bedrooms and baths. It is currently nearing completion.
