2305 Studio's Up2green project promotes an urban zen aesthetic and is located in a residential neighborhood in Vietnam. The contemporary residence is surrounded by stark architecture rather than nature but is home to a central courtyard and vegetable garden -- a gift from a father to his children.
Designed for a family with growing kids, this home is simplistic and visually striking, boasting sleek interior decor that is accented with terracotta Buddha heads and sculptures. The residence in Vietnam was created for parents who wished to raise their kids in a home with gardens and greenery.
Though its surrounding neighborhood lacks green spaces, this home's vegetable garden and orchards ensure that its young inhabitants will get plenty of exposure to the great outdoors.
