Winner: Urban house of the year 2020. Thang House is a residence that integrates rural living in the rapidly-growing city of Da Nang, Vietnam.
The house is organised into two parts: living spaces and the other spaces that have been conceived as its green lungs.
Living spaces are nourished with filtered air, diffused light and the aroma of grass and flowers that act as the green lungs.
With this coexistence, the project is a successful attempt to integrate nature and renewable resources, while providing engaging communal spaces that connect back to nature.
Judges comments: "We were impressed with the ambition of replacing the footprint of the house with greenery. It’s both beautiful - and has a benefit to its surroundings."
