Trees stacked house in Vietnam

As a result of rapid urbanization, many Vietnamese cities are losing large swathes of their tropical green spaces. This transformation of low-density landscapes into densely populated metropolises not only increases flood risk, but also significantly contributes to air pollution and a dislocation from the natural environment. In ho chi minh city — one of the urban areas most effected by this change is developing ‘house for trees’, a series of residential projects that incorporate green spaces as part of their design.

The architecture firm led by vo trong nghia — has designed ‘stacked planters house’, a property that seeks to establish a strong relationship between nature and its inhabitants. The plot forms part of a ‘neatly planned urban area’, where maximum living spaces were achieved by at the expense of green space. Conceived as a a ‘small park in a dense neighborhood’, the architect’s response was to design a house where functions are contained within a series of stacked volumes.
