Greenery abounds at this urban oasis in Hanoi.

To contend with rapid urbanization, air pollution, and lack of public space in Hanoi, ODDO Architects has designed VH House, a contemporary home for a family of four with an abundance of greenery placed strategically throughout the interior and exterior of the dwelling.

ODDO Architects designed a contemporary home for a family of four on a narrow, 4 meter by 16 meter plot of land in the dense city of Hanoi, Vietnam.

The narrow plot of land, which measures four meters by 16 meters, originally was used as a garden filled with fruit trees and vegetables. The architects wanted to embrace the property’s original verdant elements by incorporating plantings into the design of the home.

A continuum of spaces gives a more spacious feeling to the interior of the small home. The open, flowing floor plan is divided by exterior and interior courtyards filled with plantings, which help to designate the division of spaces in lieu of walls.

Inside the home, concrete floors, white walls, and plenty of windows keep the living spaces feeling bright and cheery.
