Idee Architects are assigned to design VH6 House for a family with two children. This corner villa is located in an urban finished civil work, Long Bien, Vietnam with 350 m2 in size. For the family’s modern lifestyle, the extension space is added to take all advantage of the view while the flexible brise-soleil system is used to adjust the light into the house.

The living room can be found on the first floor. The next wide pent-roof lengths the kitchen where is extended by the concrete roof plank. The using space also can be extended and the boundaries between inside and outside of the garden can be cleared easily.
