vietnamese inspiration

Vietnamese / Japanese architect collaboration Vo Trong Nghia are the masterminds behind the Saigon house ‘Stacking Green’. The front and back facades are made up of layers of concrete planters cantilevered from two side walls. The effect is a stunning green wall of beautiful, tropical plants. Each of the planters has been designed with the height of the plants in mind, giving an organic staggered effect to the otherwise crisp and modern building. My favourite aspect of the house though, is the view from inside out. It’s a complete oasis once your inside the front door. A tranquil piece of architecture in an otherwise chaotic city.
