Vo Trong Nghia, villa in Ha Long (Vietnam)

Falling within the 'houses for trees' series of the Ho Chi Minh City-based practice of Vo Trong Nghia, this residence faces Ha Long Bay in northeast Vietnam, dotted with small elevated islands. With the intention of fusing architecture and nature, the pentagon-plan building's concrete facade presents perforations pierced by foliage. Stairs rise up six levels in a spiral around the perimeter, forming a transition space between inside and out and protecting the house against heat and noise.
