Designed by Juma Architects the sparkling new residence has been crafted for a life of serenity and sophistication that borrows from the soothing ambiance of modern holiday retreats.
Even the entry captures the uniqueness of the home with a loggia that offers a view of the garden even as it leads you into the living room. A neutral color palette warm wooden tones and a smart lap pool add to the air of comfort and relaxation indoors even as the homeowners take in the sights and sounds outside!
Large bookshelves in the living room and chalkboard paint-clad cabinets in the kitchen add color and contrast to the setting even as polished contemporary surfaces are combined with traditional brick features. A simple staircase leads to the top level and the attic that contains a revamped guest space with bunk beds which can also easily double as an ergonomic family zone.
The simple structure of the home ensures that the entire family can enjoy an extended ‘family zone’ while soaking in the sunlight and relishing the multitude of sights and sounds outside. The marquee protects this glass edifice even while creating shaded walkways between the different wings of the home.
When it comes to the world of housing in an urban setting space is often the biggest limiting factor. And in Vietnam this problem becomes even more stark as narrow homes with distinct Southeast Asian colonial architecture sit next to one another.
