In order to distribute the limited living areas of a conventional row house in Hanoi into practical living areas, the designers at Landmak Architecture modern room dividers made of Corten steel as a banister and call his successful, playful project the QT house. The typical family houses in the Asian megapoles consist of more than three floors due to the lack of space. They are set up on narrow construction sites, which is why the rather narrow and long rooms often lack light or private space for the residents. With modern room dividers made of Corten steel, processed in warm tones, a solution full of art has been found for all these problems.

A staircase with steps made of solid wood runs from time to time as the vertical centerpiece of the terraced house and its modern room dividers allow the light to shine through the separated rooms in the form of positive messages. With the specific combination of direct and indirect lighting, artistic shadow plays are created on the natural surfaces of the steps, which increase the positive mood.

A practical wooden storage space is provided under the stairs on the ground floor. The modern room dividers that stand between the living areas through the whole house and the stairs also serve as transparent banisters. Behind the stairs, made of solid wood, lead to the second floor.

The wall lighting in the stairwell was planned by the architects in such a way that rays through the modern room dividers and the floating stairs create an interesting play of shadows on the walls and floor on the ground floor.

Decorative accents made of warm and cold materials such as modern room dividers made of Corten steel and leather sofa in the color camel create an interior with an extraordinary mix of styles. The minimalist ambience is refreshed by the positive statements cut out on the corten plates. The artfully processed decorative accents from the trend material attract the visitor’s attention again and again in a special way.

The minimalist kitchen is connected from the stairs to the upper and lower floors by railings, which currently serve as modern room dividers and designer decorative elements for a playful interior. Behind the kitchen is a bathroom, which is separated from the dining and living area by an interior wall and a sliding glass door.

It is typical of the Asian houses that the living area and the kitchen are just behind the entrance. The designers at QT Haus forego this detail of the Asian lifestyle and on the ground floor a garage with storage space is being created, which is separated from the street by a semi-transparent folding door.

Asian townhouses have limited living space, but none of them lack a roof terrace with plants. On the fourth floor of QT Haus there is a mini garden with natural stones where a real tree grows.
