This house is located in Binh Tien Alley (District 6, Ho Chi Minh City) – an old area of the city, so the house is also quite old, causing many items to begin to deteriorate seriously. After being transferred, Ms. P asked a young architect to repair and renovate the house.
The project’s executor – Architect Van Canh said that this house is a typical representative of the degraded and secretive state of old townhouses in Vietnam’s urban areas today. The house has a modest area of 2m x 9m, with a relatively messy function and a somewhat narrow layout.
Through surveying the current state and inspecting the house, as well as talking with the owner, Van Canh began to make the first plans. This architect said that the most difficult problem of narrow houses is the space and the passage of stairs. Therefore, the solution that this architect offers to the homeowner is to convert from a short straight staircase that is somewhat difficult to move, to a curved staircase, which is an aesthetic solution as well as helping to narrow the space. narrow becomes light and no longer feels difficult.
In the living room, because the owner wanted to make it like a normal living room, the architect beat the empty wall behind the sofa to make a ventilation box, in order to make the house airy and aesthetically pleasing.
The kitchen area is translated and extended in front near the stairs, partly to get light as well as so that the smell of food can be brought out faster.
In the space layout, Van Canh expands the WC area by adding a standing shower area. Therefore, although the WC is not too large, it is also clearly divided into dry and wet parts, which makes the backyard space not too wet.
In the backyard, because the house is narrow, the light is very little, so the architect proposed to make the attic and get the light from the roof to let the backyard and laundry area be bright enough.
The second floor is designed as a private space, including a bedroom and a wardrobe with a simple style, using light but very strong pine slats.
In this bedroom, the owner does not require excessive investment, so the layout is almost minimalist.
The stair hall has a small bench, where you can sit and relax, drink tea, go out to the front space, this place is created with the main purpose of being a working area, reading a book or can also be for sleeping. with the most flexible and simple motto.
The house also has a balcony, relatively small area, but still enough for a small chair along with a row of hanging flowers to create a deep chill feeling, helping to dispel fatigue after a stressful working day.
According to Van Canh, home is not only for living, but also a place where we relax after tiring working days, so it doesn’t matter whether your house is small or large, simple or unnecessary, it’s important. is that you know what you should do with it so that its value brings as much comfort and peace as possible.
