located at the heart of vietnam’s ha tinh city, H&P architects has completed a 1,300 square meter office building on a relatively small budget of $500,000 USD. the project adheres to three key principles: a distinctive design, quick construction time, and a minimum overall cost.

 

the three-storey block is placed in an east-west direction, with the two upper floors covered by a latticed structure full of plants and crops. the structure, which is comprised of vertically stacked concrete blocks, embraces the entirety of the workspace. the irrigation system is integrated between the blocks’ joints, minimizing the negative impact of local climatic problems such as noise, air pollution, overheating and the threat of typhoons.
