WEST JAVA NEW UNIVERSITY

The West Java campus is conceived as a compact living-learning ‘village’ that sits harmoniously within its natural setting. The master plan took advantage of the morphology of the site by concentrating the development of academic and student housing around the central valley and the ravines. This will enable the preservation of key watersheds on-site and create a series of diverse open spaces.

204 HOUSE

Located in Nha Trang city in a densely populated area, cluttered with traditional narrow houses and amidst air and noise pollution from motor vehicles, this house is indeed a breath of fresh air in the neighbourhood. With a white façade and abundant greenery, this dwelling for eight stands out also for the way it ‘steps back’ from the street, converting its frontage space as a green buffer.

BINH HOUSE

Binh House, built in 2016, is one of the projects in the architecture firm’s House for Trees series, a prototypical housing design that seeks to provide green spaces within high-density neighbourhoods. The client’s family consists of three generations. Therefore, the challenge was to create spaces that allow the residents to interact and communicate with one another. The house is an outcome of various passive strategies that govern the nature-friendly aspect of the project.

MEKONG IN CRISIS

About 70 million people reside along the Mekong. It is one of the longest rivers in the world and has a distinctive ecosystem in Southeast Asia. The delta, in particular, faces threats of rising sea level, ill-planned dam constructions, fresh water and food security, salt water intrusion, floods, erosion, etc. It sits less than 5 metres above sea level and is listed as a red zone by the World Bank, meaning that it is highly vulnerable to advancing seawater.
