 It is in a typical developing and urbanizing area, facing to a noisy and dusty street. But it is also very close to the river and the Saigon Zoo with a plenty of greenery.

Against a backdrop of this duality, the concept of the house is to accommodate two different lifestyles in a tropical climate; one is a natural and traditional lifestyle, utilizing natural lighting and ventilation, and the other is a modern and well-tempered lifestyle with mechanical equipment such as air-conditioners.
