Binh Than House, situated in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, was designed by Vo Trong Nghia Architects in collaboration with Sanuki + Nishizawa Architects. Three generations of one family share the house, which blurs internal and external space as a response to the region’s tropical climate. Utilizing both traditional and modern modes of temperature control, the house makes use of light and ventilation, as well as modern air-conditioning. Vertically the house is split into four levels, with an external facade made out of punctured three-dimensional blocks. Sliding glass doors allow the spaces to be closed off to the elements, while still offering views of the city and the surrounding wildlife.
