Vietnam-based architecture studio Sanuki Daisuke Architects has constructed a unique four-story residence, located in Ho Chi Minh City, that is designed to maximize a very narrow and seemingly inconvenient plot of land.
This four-story residence, dubbed Hem House, features windows that are placed at irregular levels in order to maximize the amount of natural light. The windows are also sheathed in a special steel mesh that is strong enough and covers enough space to provide security while also allowing for breeze and cross-ventilation.
Perhaps the highlight feature of this residence is its hidden rooftop garden, which offers a place for relaxation amid the hustle and bustle of the city.
This intelligently designed four-story residence speaks to the ability of smart architecture to get around restrictions of space, something which is important in increasingly crowded urban settlements.
