“House for Trees” is a unique project designed by Vo Trong Nghia Architects. The house is composed of five individual concrete boxes, which “play the role” of giant planters and individual homes.
The architects designed the project by using sustainable and locally-source materials such as bamboo and old bricks. The place is filled with small interconnected gardens due to the arrangement of the five “planters” around a central courtyard.
People who live in the individual units share the courtyard and the gardens on the ground floor, which offer shade when the weather climbs over 80°F, while the large glass doors and windows allow the natural light to flood the indoor space and provide ventilation.
