KIENTRUC O completed the design and development of House 304, an ingenious vertical home located in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The front facade is connected to an open street and emulates a tower — its size a tall and narrow 11.5 feet by 39 feet.

“In this house, we want to provoke an honest living experience for a young family living in a typical urban Vietnamese townhouse. The design context posed a challenge to create a casual, well-ventilated and well-lit space within the constrained building footage,” the architects explained.

The structure consists of 5 levels, connected through an elegant white stairway. On the bottom floor, the living room, dining area and kitchen line up from the main entrance. 2 bedrooms take up the third and 4th level, while the upper volume accommodates an office and a wash room. A void and a skylight in the middle of the ceiling enhance natural lighting throughout the house.

House 304 is a combination of simple spatial functionality, contemporary materials and construction methodology. It is a pure representation depicting the life of a young Vietnamese family, that is straightforward and authentic,” the designers concluded. [Photos by Hiroyuki Oki]
