Under the rapid urbanization, cities in Vietnam have diverged far from their origins of being low density tropical green spaces. Newly developed urban areas are losing their connection with nature. “Bamboo House” is a small residential project in a narrow alley called “Hem” in Ho-Chi-Minh City. This project aims at developing the concept of “House for Trees”, a series of a prototypical housing design that targets to provide green space within high density neighborhood.

Design Description

Enshi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture is located at the southwestern part of Hubei Province. According to the legend, the Tujia people are descendants of the ancient Ba people, who were Chu people during the Warring States period. As Qin destroyed Chu, part of the Chu people fled into the deep mountains to avoid Qin, which resulted in Wuling people and hundreds of square kilometers of peach blossom recorded in the “Peach-Blossom Source”.

Arrow Studio in Victoria, Australia by nervegna reed architecture

The Arrow Studio was conceived as an out of focus, reflective vortex in the Australian landscape.

Our client Mr. White retired to the countryside near Hanging Rock in Victoria a few years before the project started. His brief was to build a small gallery in the back yard facing the bush, where he could hang paintings and photos and also use as a studio. For security reasons, as well as to maximize hanging space, we were asked to have minimal windows, and for those windows to be framed in a way that intruders could not break in.
