项目坐落于越南富安省,业主出生于富安乡下,长大后在大城市学习、工作、生活,每年暑假、越南传统新年假期,甚至隔离期间,他们都会回到这里。疫情的爆发,让业主与家人有更多的时间待在乡下,富安住宅(Phú Yên House)也由此诞生。

The Landlord was born in the countryside of Phu Yen, grew up to study, work and live in the big city, and return to the countryside every summer vacation, traditional Vietnamese New Year holiday, or as a quarantine period. because of the Covid-19 epidemic. Phu Yen House was born to serve this.

The living room and kitchen space are rotated and the slanted fences create interesting and vivid views when we move inside the house.In order to free up the view when living inside the room, we designed many large windows, but the construction investment cost of the owner is small, and the construction technique of large-format glass doors in the locality is limited. Therefore, for large doorways, we do not install glass doors, but build an extra layer of high fence surrounding it to ensure safety and privacy. The fence is slanted to not limit the view and create second angle is more interesting.
