Veitnam House Bamboo grows up inside narrow by Nguyen Khac Phuoc Architects
Plants grow up through the central atrium of this five-metre-wide house in Vietnam, designed by Nguyen Khac Phuoc Architects to offer its residents respite from noise and smog.
A House in Trees occupies a narrow five-metre-wide plot in Tu Son town in Bac Ninh, a province east of Vietnam’s capital that is facing rapid urbanisation.
It provides a home for a couple and their two teenage children.
Nguyen Khac Phuoc Architects also used a three-storey-high atrium to bring natural light and ventilation into the heart of a four-metre-wide townhouse in Vietnam.
Other recent examples of skinny houses in Vietnam include a 3.5-metre-wide property by Kientruc O and a three-metre-wide family home by a21 Studio.
