A Rooftop Lounge And Garden Surrounded By Brick Walls Was Designed For This Home

ODDO architects have designed a contemporary home in Hanoi, Vietnam, that’s surrounded by taller buildings and includes rooftop courtyards.

Due to rapid urbanization and the lack of public spaces, the architects designed a home that includes outdoor spaces.

The lower level of the home has a white exterior, while the upper level consists of multiple brick volumes, some with overhanging plants, adding a greenery element to the space.

The rooftops also include space for relaxing in the busy city.

Outdoor lighting included in the design of the rooftops enables the space to be used at night. It also adds light to the neighborhood as it can pass through the walls and openings.

Inside the home, the interior has been kept open with glass ceilings, creating a bright living space.
