The Red Roof
by TAA Design

Winner: Rural house of the year and Winner: Architecture Project of the Year 2020 TAA Design has designed a green roof with stepped planters finished in red plaster and tiles for a house in Quang Ngai, Vietnam.

The studio has created multi-purpose courtyards and agricultural gardens interwoven into the space from the ground floor to the roof, in keeping with the lifestyle of the local people.

The green-roof system makes the smallest volume in the urban area and contributes a common green area to the ecosystem and the environment, as well as proving a food source for meals.

Judges comments: "Small projects like this one show that great design can be made available to ordinary people. It is a small, humble gesture - that has a very powerful reach."
