Zen House is a Japanese inspired home, renovated from the original house, we maintained to not changing too much on the beams structure. The brief desires a contemporary design with convenience, while possessing a minimal, simple and serene vibe.
Using a boundary-blurring materiality, Zen House captures an “inner peace” spirit, while allowing functional areas to work effectively together. We use wood slatted sliding doors as the front door, this will enhance ventilation across the house; and thus giving the space a touch of playfulness with the dance of sunlight through the slatted wood.
For the back garden, a system of glass sliding doors is imparted to prevent the effect of Vietnamese tropical climate.
