Vietnam is home to some of the most mesmerising pieces of architecture we’ve encountered of late here at The Coolector and there’s another addition to our ever-growing list in the shape of this superb looking AM House. It was designed by three young architects who now head up their own independent studios: Nguyen Huu Duy of AmDesign Office, Nguyen Duy of Time Architects and Bui The Long of Creative Architects.
Designed as a holiday home, AM House is located in a rural area of Long An Province, which can be found around 45 minutes by car from the owner’s main residence in Ho Chi Minh City. The bedrooms and living spaces at this thatch-roofed property in Vietnam’s Cần Giuộc district open up to deliver amazing views across a pond that wraps around two sides of the structure and make it an incredibly relaxing and restful space to spend time away from the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh.
The architects behind AM House set out to create a house on a 3,500-square-metre plot that combines expertly with the lush surroundings on which it is positioned. It has bee designed for a marketing director at a large corporation, who wanted a peaceful second home and it’s mission well and truly accomplished with this breathtaking holiday home in Vietnam.
AM House boasts a thatched roof and an impressive pond, which provide natural elements that are a nod to the greenery and a nearby lake. It has an expansive, open-plan living area, with concrete walls used to carve out more private areas which includes two bedrooms, a maid’s room, the kitchen and various utility areas.
The home has been designed with five separate blocks that are arranged at random under a big thatched roof and adjacent to a lake. The pond directly outside the living spaces wraps around the corner of the building and consists of a relaxing, sheltered outdoor deck that is connected to the lounge by an impressive line of stepping stones. AM House was built with a focus on natural light, ventilation and cooling to ensure that it could be more eco-friendly.
