Dinh Liet House



This project is a house renovation in the center of the down town of Hanoi.

The plot of the old building was 2.8m x 33m. The longest interior view is designed to make comfortable living space and dining space with view to exterior garden. The facade which is covered by reinforced concrete horizontal louver has vertical garden with trees which contributes not only to the residents but also to the city.

The concrete staircase was relocated to steel staircase to intake sunlight into common rooms locating lower levels. Natural ventilation is maximized with using light well as a pass way of natural wind.
