Vietnam-based Tropical Space architects created the 'Long An House,' with a traditional design spread over three separate spaces.
The house uses ventilation efficiency by dividing the roof into two pieces with a courtyard in the middle, allowing the breeze to hit every room at all parts of the day. The hallow clay bricks used in the structure can absorb rain, while reducing heat in the flooring. With an open concept layout, the house has a loft-life feel, with exposed wooden beams and large two-storey ceilings.
The pool in the center courtyard acts as a modern art piece, while still providing tenants with a natural cooling system in the hottest seasons. The luxurious, resort looking design of the Long An House is paired with extreme functional features.
