After a renovation carried out in 2014, this luxury villa, located in Thao Dien, a villa suburb of Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, shines in new splendor. Thanks to the reduction of the structure to its minimal form, time and cost savings of 30% of the total construction costs were achieved – a huge advantage for builders and architects alike. This made it possible to add new elements to the existing construction. A vertical garden was integrated into the white front facade to create a symbiosis of landscape and architecture.
A vertical garden as an architectural highlight
My An Pham Thi and Michael Charruault from MM++ With this renovation project, architects had the intention of transforming the existing residential structure with an Art Deco feel into a contemporary villa with clear lines and open spaces, while maintaining its basic structure made of concrete. Natural cross ventilation should also be ensured through wide windows and sliding elements.
A total of 5280 m² of built-up area is available, 280 m² of which is for living in. On the ground floor there is a spacious living room with cooking and dining areas, completely glazed on three sides.
Verical garden as a modern facade design
A vertical garden ensures a harmonious, flowing visual transition between nature and architecture in several modern residential buildings. Here, the wall greening was used as a plant-based accent on the front and rear facades, not only for environmental reasons or from an aesthetic point of view, but also to offer optimal privacy in the bedrooms on the upper floor.
