Minimalist architecture is characterized by a simple design language and clear geometry, which is kept clean by additional, decorative elements. However, typical of this style, contemporary buildings are by no means easy. They meet high standards and, above all, offer a very high level of living comfort, which is highly valued by the residents.
Minimalist architecture – ‘Long Cave’ house in Vietnam
The minimalist architecture contains everything it has to offer. Indoor and outdoor areas are reduced to the essentials and follow a clear style line. Most of the time, a feeling of security and security is achieved in the residents, which everyone needs in their home. The ‘Long Cave’ house in a suburb of Vinh Long, Vietnam, was designed with precisely this guiding principle in mind.
Minimalist architecture ‘hidden’ in the suburb of a metropolis
The house is located in a suburb of a large metropolis in Vietnam, where there is unrest and social problems and people withdraw into their homes. The project is not called ‘Long Cave’ for nothing. The house plan corresponds perfectly to the idea for cave – there is only one front door that serves as an entrance and exit. All rooms merge into one another and every window is missing. A narrow ribbon of windows runs across the roof, providing daylight to the rooms.
Minimalist architecture and interior greening create a feeling of security
The indoor greening plays the role of garden, which is missing due to security. In a sustainable and particularly customer-oriented way, the architects from 23o5 Studio have done away with the problematic environment without sacrificing the comfort of living.
