LT House by Tropical Space
The LT House is a beautiful modern home located in the Long Thanh District in Vietnam. Designed by Tropical Space, the dominant material of the construction of this home is bricks, which is easily noticeable. But it is also what gives it a cozy look, especially with the open plan interior design and its connection to the outdoor spaces.
This small house is located in a new residential area in Long Thanh District.
The owner is a newlywed with the desire of having their own house. With the limited area, the architects think that the private space should be shared to have more space for the sharing area.
The furniture is design simply and easy to make. To save the cost, the owner has bought the material and make all of them. Therefore, the cost for this part was saved significantly.
The front and back yards are the buffer space to reduce to hot from outside environment. The front yard is a relaxing area such as for morning coffee. This is the place that wind, sunlight and the shadow of the brick wall meet each other.
The ground floor is a multi-function space. It is used for both to gather friends and for a small coffee shop in the future. The mezzanine is the family space including two bedrooms (one for the couple, one for the baby in the future), kitchen and dinning table. This sharing space is designed for the user to feel the direction of the breeze and touch the shadow and sunlight while they move from the ground floor to the stair and this sharing space.
LT House is belong to the research for Affordable Houses in Vietnam of Tropical Space. The team is willing to create beautiful and enjoyable living space for middle-income labour around Vietnam
