Multi-Sized Circular Openings and Concrete Balconies Accentuate The Brick Façade of This Vietnamese House | AD9 Architects

Designed by AD9 Architects on the VIP island in Hoa Xuan of Da Nang city in Vietnam, this is a home of five people, including a retired couple, their two adolescent children, and the grandmother. The Vietnam-based architecture firm created an extended structure with locally available natural materials such as baked brick, rustic stones, dressed stones, etc., to design the house while the furniture in the house camefrom the family’s previous home. The firm created an elongated structure with the side portions enveloped with concrete to lower outside dust, noise and harsh sunlight. The brick façade of the building is punctuated with several different size round openings and concrete balconies. Read here more about the project:

AD9 Architects intended to design a house that offers a continuous flow of fresh air and greenery and natural light intermingles. As the house is a west-facing home, the firm created several filler spaces to minimize outside noise, dust, and intense sunlight. 

Bent Brick Exterior

The building’s façade features bent brickwork along with punctured circular openings and concrete balconies. 


The empty spaces allow air, light and greenery to come together in the tube house. The back part of the house takes shape as an indoor courtyard extending from the bottom to the top floor while the wall is enveloped with small square windows that save it from the severe weather of central Vietnam. 


The extruded chimney-like section infiltrates the sloping roof allowing natural light and air to enter the structure. This part acts as a central axis of the house and is covered by staircases, making dwellers interact on different floors and enjoy the skylight.

Welcoming Interiors

The interior design of the house imitates the bent brickwork on the facade, generating a remarkable experience at each moment of the day. da-nang-house-ad9-architects-surfaces

The circular apertures, curved doors, arcs embellish the interiors of the house. The ceiling, flooring and walls of the home feature rustic local stones.
