'A House in Trees,' a family home in the town of Tu Son, Vietnam serves a counterintuitive purpose. When one says that they want to get some fresh air, that typically means stepping oustide, but A House in Trees tries to create fresh air indoors.
Tu Son, like many towns in Vietnam, is industrializing incredibly quickly. One of the unfortunate byproducts of this rapid growth is a tremendous amount of smog. As such, A House in Trees is designed specifically to combat these bilious clouds.
The project's name is an inversion of its actual concept -- the family home really describes trees in a house. Nguyen Khac Phuoc Architects, the team behind the house, achieved this tree-filled interior by building "voids" into the structure. At two points throughout the house are open spaces filled with trees, bringing an outdoor feel indoors.
