1+1>2 architects adds to jackfruit village in vietnam with thatched lakeside residence

1+1>2 architects has completed a second house as part of a community of new residences in a western suburb of hanoi, vietnam. the project, titled ‘mr. hung’s house’, neighbors ‘mother’s house’, which was completed by the same firm. forming part of ‘jackfruit village’, the lakeside property features a distinctive thatched roof that protects the home from the region’s hot sun and monsoon rains. as with its neighbor, the property was designed to exist in harmony with the landscape, allowing residents to immerse themselves in nature.

with the design of ‘mr. hung’s house’, named after the project’s client, 1+1>2 architects sought to develop the structure horizontally to maximize lake views. taking into account the sloping terrain, the building is elevated to counter humidity and ensure natural surface drainage. raising the structure also helps avoid termites, which could damage the building’s structural integrity. the house adheres to the site’s vegetation, with the position of the existing trees dictating the configuration of the dwelling.

as the home is oriented around the lake, all internal spaces are permeated with plants, wind, and sunlight. a footpath leads to the home’s entrance, which opens directly into the main living space. the ground floor also contains a study as well as two bedrooms, each with access to a lakeside terrace. a staircase housed within a thatched tower — designed to appear as a rice straw stack — ascends to the main bedroom and sauna on the upper storey. the adobe bricks used for the walls were sourced from the land itself.
