located at the top of a hill near the vietnamese city of nha trang, this small restaurant has been completed by local firm a21studio. the project, which is part of the region’s I-resort – is capable of hosting 60 guests, and has been constructed using local resources and materials.

instead of adjusting the sourced wood to meet specific modules, the logs are kept whole – reducing the amount of modifying required. above, a lightweight metal frame is covered with a colorful and vibrant canvas that serves as a identifiable and visible lantern. this canopy not only functions as the restaurant’s primary light source, but also protects visitors from the region’s rain and sun.

a bar has also been erected using stone slabs that were brought to the site and installed with an old boat covering the top of the structure. the project seeks to challenge conventional building methods with processes that reduce building time and waste while maximizing available materials.
