For this family of four in Qui Nhơn, Vietnam, the priority was to be able to see or hear each other most of the time even if they were in different parts of the home.
Since the wife loves cooking and consequently spends a lot of time in the kitchen, she needed to keep an eye on her two sons, Bin and Bon, who would often play in the front yard with the neighbours’ children.
To address the design brief, architects H.a. Workshop decided to build an open-concept home with a terrace structure for each level, so each receded floor overlooks the main area below. The house was designed around the kitchen, which was kept as the central spot.
