The 150-square-meter house in Tan Phu District, Ho Chi Minh City was born from the remnants of an old, solid structure with a large and airy courtyard, the intention being to create a completely new and interesting living space.

The architects divided many of the former structure’s abundant rooms into more functional spaces using triangular shapes, creating an airy and light environment.

Triangular shapes are present in nearly all aspects of the house.

To provide a sense of coziness, familiarity and luxury, the architects utilized stones, patterned tiles, and concrete bricks in their design. They also set up some green spaces to create a sense of nature and vitality.

A playground for the owners’ children made of iron connects to the master bedroom. It is designed to take advantage of the space between the two floors.

Asked about the idea of triangles, the lead architect said: "We found that the new system of stairs and passages, along with the new division of rooms are more reasonable, making the house airy and full of natural light."

Dividing the space into triangles makes it easier to access each room.

From the entrance, the space gradually expands. Every room has at least one side facing the skylight.

The architects retained the old courtyard as a core for ventilation. When renovating the house, they set up some more skylights to collect sunlight.

Plants set up in the house, such as vernonia elliptica, ferns, and bird of paradise, are common and suitable for the tropical climate in Ho Chi Minh City.

In addition to the main materials, some bedrooms also feature glass that divides the space, and allows greater visual effects.

When the lights are on, the house looks like a lantern in the middle of the street.

The house was completed this year after five months of renovation.
