time architects' residential project in vietnam aims to bring god to form through nature

time architects ’ latest residential project in ho chi minh city is designed for a christian family, whose belief is the most important part of their lives. they want their new house to be modern and full of tradition as well. studying the context and the clients, the aim for the architects is to find ‘god’ in ‘nature’ and bring him to form, in nature: light, wind, the green — inspired by the space order of the traditional house, with patios, intermediate spaces, louvre doors — are ‘transformed’ to a ‘cover’, fitting the needs of living.

the ‘soft-cover’ takes the role as an in-out environment filter as well as enhancing the interactions between homeowners and neighbors. the voids in vietnamese based studio time architects‘ ‘// house’ are the ‘storage’ for future ‘changes’. the separating-wood floors are used instead of the concrete, solid floors. through the voids, nature, in form of lights and winds, spreads throughout the house. wherever you are standing in ‘// house’, it is possible to feel nature surrounding you, changing as time goes by. with this, the bonds, the connections, the communications between people are strengthened.
