Uncle’s House in Lam Dong, Vietnam by 3 Atelier

The story began in 2015 while we were doing a construction in Di Linh Highland. Our Uncle helped us look for the materials for the construction, which was our big problem in this rural area (that house also has an interesting story, we’ll tell you later). For many times searching for materials together, we talked more and more about our own future plans and passions. Nothing happened until a few days later he came back and shared his concerns and his plans for a new house.

Living with his wife, his son and his daughter, he spent everyday from early morning to late night at a small booth in the local market, selling rubber shoes and clothes. The kids grow up in the environment only within the busy and bustling market. Their daily activities were nothing else but the games on technology devices. He realized that they might have no chance to experience an amazing childhood in the arms of Mother Nature as he had before.

That was the reason why he planned to sell his old house, and then moved to a place which was a little bit far away from the central. He wanted to have a real home for his family. His desired home was the new home which was not only fulfilled with laughter and joy of his children, but peaceful enough for him to recall his sweet memories in his childhood. Two kids were born in the urban area already, now it’s time for them to completely grow up in the connection with nature.

Understanding his concerns, we designed and built this house.

The new land is located next to the highway that made our project more challenging. How to solve the problems with noise and dust from the highway became the most important thing for us to think about.

Uncle’s House reflects featured image of Di Linh Plateau, using a wide range of traditional as well as modern materials. All are processed just enough to maintain the nature of material itself. The tile walls proved their power when keeping the house warm at nights and cool during the sunny days. They especially recall the owners to their very old moments living peacefully in a Vietnamese village when they were young. Light also has its own story in this cozy house. Here the kids can spend their time to climb on the tree, draw on the rock, grow vegetables with their mom and take care of the fish right in their own yard, which they cannot found in the modern society nowadays.

The house may be small. Yes, it is. But we don’t think it is.
