This extraordinary four-story townhouse, designed by AZ85 Studio, is where four families spanning three generations find connection and comfort. Amidst a sea of old-style townhouses in the heart of Phan Rang, Vietnam, the narrow Bread House is boldly distinguished by a unique iron lattice facade, interwoven with lush greenery. From a common living area that’s connected to a quaint backyard on the ground floor to the four master bedrooms on the upper levels and self contained penthouse suite, every square meter has been thoughtfully utilized to fulfill diverse needs. Natural light floods through large windows and a skylight, falling upon crisp white minimalist decor schemes that provide a peaceful haven from the urban environment.
