Designed and built in conjunction with Vietnamese architecture and design firm Real Architecture and Mima NY Studio, the Fuschia Villa was constructed. The villa is located in the Thao Dien District 2 in Vietnam. The exterior of the structure features differing materials and finishes, the textured stone occupies the main volume of the house, while a horizontal white crosspiece occupies the upper volume.

Taking inspiration from its surrounding landscape, the house capitalizes on the use of natural materials to gently blend the house into its environment. The interior consists of large open spaces that provide the comfort of mobility within the house. While the family room is found on the mezzanine floor, the living areas and the dining room are connected to the outdoor pool and deck.
