Located in an urban renewal zone by a river in Da Nang, Vietnam, this residential construction uses the ground floor as a small cafe formed by rectangular brick walls, while the upper floor serves as the living space of a nuclear family, which is combined by three different blocks on a square plane.
The balconies are expanded as a part of the interior space. Therefore, these areas transform into common zones between the interior and exterior, helping to promote more activities and to alter wind speed passing through the areas.
