verdant retreat by km architecture office

 

Designed by KM Architecture Office, Long Thanh Villa, named after its location in Long Thanh, Đong Nai, Vietnam, has become a retreat for its residents, longing to live near nature. The villa is situated within an existing garden with numerous trees, therefore the architects had to ensure that the structure’s dimensions and the construction footprint harmonized with the surrounding landscape. The design is kept clean, with two rectangular white boxes sliding atop one another. The use of bamboo, a material deeply rooted in local culture, in the facade’s adjustable shades, adds a touch of tradition to the modern design.

Long Thanh Villa integrating with nature

 

Embracing nature fully, is one of the main elements that KM Architecture Office incorporates in this project. The architects, using the method of cutting through the volume, create spaces to weave through and establish small gardens within the larger landscape compound. The block-shaped structure of the villa allows the creation of corridors, spacious verandas, shaded roofs, and auxiliary blocks that host the elevator, the garage, and the secondary kitchen. The large glass floor-to-ceiling windows offer wide views of the garden to the main core areas (kitchen, living room, and bedrooms). The residence’s structure also reduces the impact of hot sunlight on the west-facing facade and creates the best ventilation conditions for the house by using shaded roofs and airy corridors. KM Architecture Office also proposes a system of front facade rotating frames made of bamboo, a material used on the traditional wall imagery and rafters in Vietnamese homes.

natural tones and tranquil ambiance IN VIETNAM

 

The villa’s landscape design includes a yard and a bamboo trellis above, serving as a place where the owner engages with their hobbies. The front yard consists of a lawn, with just a few trees placed strategically to enhance the view. A green area with a fish pond, and terrace are also part of the villa’s garden design, creating a focal point towards the main building block. The materials and colors feature natural tones: oak wood, white paint, and bamboo, complementing their surroundings and creating relaxing atmosphere, alongside the essential amenities.
