Design Firm Le House Mixes Natural & Brutalist Elements

The industrial cafe interior of An’garden Café in Vietnam is communicated through the steel frames, the rustic materials and the heavy use of concrete with distinctively geometrical brutalist elements. As the establishment is a present for the owner's wife, architect firm Le House incorporated some unconventional and curious design elements, making An’garden Café a destination where guests can enjoy "both coffee fragrances and picturesque surroundings."

Le House established a strong contrast between the industrial cafe interior and impromptu hanging plant pots that "conjure up a vision of a dreamlike hanging garden." The robust vegetation sharply stands out on the naked cement walls. The result is a highly sophisticated space that cleverly expresses itself through a loud design language and strong juxtaposing relationships of stylistic elements.
