A house in Saigon has been designed with a simple living room and large bedrooms to provide its occupants with space to relax and play amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
The idea of building the 117-meter-square house in Saigons Distr came to architects when there was a Covid-19 outbreak in Vietnam last year, so schools and entertainment venues were shut down. Homeowners want to have large spaces for their sons to play and relax when they must stay at home for days.

With no living room, homeowners put two chairs and a table on the ground floor to welcome their guests. Eliminating unnecessary spaces giving the house more space for trees and a swimming pool.
