Stacking Green

1/18

The house is a very typical tube house constructed on the plot 4m wide and 20m deep.

The front and back facades are entirely composed of layers of concrete planters cantilevered from two sidewalls, inspired by the Saigonese culture of displaying green on private houses.

We named this tropical, unique and green house as Stacking Green because its facades filled with vigorous and vital greenery. The green facade and roof top garden protect its inhabitants from the direct sunlight, street noise and pollution. Furthermore, natural ventilation through the facades and 2 skylights allow this house to save a huge amount of energy in a harsh climate in Saigon.

Concerning these ecological approaches, we referred a lot to the bioclimatic principles of traditional Vietnamese courtyard house.
