From the architects: This house is built on a bad land shape which is separated from the narrowest part of a large land. It has ugly shape and is most cramped. In suburban, people often build houses on very large land plots, therefore, the small area (in comparison with the land in this area) is paid less attention to build a house.

It is almost abandoned until a young man buys it at cheap price. He is my relative and he would like me to design it. We face the situation that the land is located far from center and local construction workers are not professional and illegible with architectural drawings.

It is really hard for us to develop a special concept with much details when implementing. We have considered the designed solutions so much and finally we choose a very practical and minimalist concept. A skin is made of brick with hollow to create the void in the most tapering angle in front of the land, it is used for planting trees to provide privacy to the interior, separates from road but still enables good ventilation and lighting for the living room and the front façade. At the back of land, in the most tapering edge, a void is created and we make a concrete panel which is hung 70cm above ground with the cupboard below and the garden above. This design enables the light, ventilation, and creates depth for kitchen and dining room (originally it is very narrow area).

The remaining spaces are bedrooms, stair, roof, toilets which are designed minimally and practically to maximize space utilization and minimize construction cost. This minimalist vietnamese home is complete with the joy of the host and create new exciting atmosphere to residents walking across the road in front of the house.

The entrance side of the Glass house features a solid façade wall, plastered and decolored to matte black. The only interruption is a ceiling-high pivot door with a thin lattice of black stained oak filtering the light.

Caxias do Sul Apartment by Leonardo Ciotta Arquitetura

The intimate part of the Caxias do Sul apartment has an office, a guest bedroom and the suite of the couple that receives an unusual equipment for urban apartments, a hot tub overlooking the city center. In order to create a great light and airy environment it was considered that the social area should be expanded to the maximum without barriers and if possible to unify the balcony to the living environment.
