Living with his wife, son and daughter, a Vietnamese family man spent every day from early morning to late night at a small booth in the local market, selling rubber shoes and clothes. Fed up with the long hours of market life, the man decided his best course of action would be to move into a giant tree house – well, sort of.
The unnamed man commissioned the help of 3 Atelier, his nephew’s renowned Ho Chi Minh City-based architecture firm, to design an innovative home geared towards embracing tranquility.
From the abundance of living trees to its uniquely constructed tile walls, 3 Atelier’s gorgeously designed home is the epitome of a modern tree house.
3 Atelier was employed to design this distinctive home to give the family the ability to escape the buzz of city life in favour of time spent connecting with their environment.
Growing up, the man’s children had only ever known what it was like to live near the busy market, so he desired to give them an opportunity at a proper, playful childhood.
The resulting abode is pretty astonishing.
Its open floor plan allows for a wealth of outside light to pour throughout the home which makes much of it feel like a lush and serene patio. Here, the children are able to spend their time climbing on the tree, drawing on the rock, growing vegetables with their mother and taking care of the fish in their yard.
The tiled walls keep the house warm at night and cool during warm days.
