[Photos] When Bricks Not Only Form a House's Structure but Also Unique Texture

Gardens and bricks allow Bien Hoa's Wall House to fill its lungs. It is essential we have some in our homes. But not all air is equal.

Citing the poor quality of indoor air compared to outdoor air, the owner of the home requested a house that could "'breathe' 24/7" according to Arch Daily. CTA | Creative Architects thus went about enclosing the eight separate spaces of the home with a layer of hollow bricks and a layer of plants. The bricks allow in fresh natural light and breezes, while the trees and shrubs enhance the air quality.

The rustic walls are complemented by sleek, minimalist furnishings. The abundance of natural light and unrestricted air flow not only cuts down on cooling costs, but makes the presence of unsightly fans unnecessary. The structure not only allows its residents to live in closer commune with nature, but to also enjoy a plentitude of together time.
