Vietnam’s Tranquil Zen House looks and feels like a Buddhist monastery
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
The 839-square-feet Zen House is a "tube house", typical of Vietnamese cities. It aims to provide a private, peaceful place amidst the crowded city streets. It is organized around a central atrium located beneath a glass ceiling flanked by wooden louvers. Broken up into several volumes, the project functions as a city-within-a-house, allowing natural light to penetrate rooms on all four floors. Concrete dominates the interior and creates a monastery-like atmosphere marked by simplicity. Related:...
