The location of the project is in Thu Duc city - a new urban area of Ho Chi Minh City, VietNam with high construction density and crowded vehicles. Not only that, Nam Villa is located in the context of large houses close together and at the foot of the apartment building. Therefore, we focus on finding design solutions to increase the privacy of the building. Surrounding the house are the buffers of wooden bars and trees combined with the two walls on both sides to make the building more private, handling the view from the neighbor's house and the adjacent high-rise apartment block. In addition, the sunshade system reduces solar radiation, catches the southeast wind at the main face of the building, limits the view from above, and opens the view from below. The interior space is flexibly opened and closed, the intersection is arranged in the middle to ensure that indoor activities always interact with the green outside. In particular, the void is located in the kitchen space, which connects family members. It can be seen that Nam Villa is an inspirational project about how to behave between the building and the context and people.

A+ architects was established with the goal of bringing A+ designs and vision to our community and the world. Always thinking creatively, we strive to find the best solution to problems and limitations in each project.
We pursue a sustainable design mindset - localized, in harmony with nature, inspired by local materials and friendly environment. In particular, we believe in the spirit of upcycling - giving old materials a second life. The responsibility of correcting the past by giving new life to old buildings has always been the mission of “A + architects”.
