2 Slim Vietnamese Homes Featured In British Architecture Magazine

2 Vietnamese homes designed by Vietnamese architects have made Deezen Magazine’s list of “10 Super Skinny Houses.”

One was the Stacking Green house which uses a dozen layers of concrete planters to create a vertical garden façade. The building is located in HCMC and is the brainchild of Vietnamese architects Vo Trong Nghia.

The other slim structure was Sanuki + Nishizawa Architect’s ANH House, also in HCMC. The design of the ‘tube-house’ allows for fresh air and light to travel through its walls and floors.

Both buildings are 4 meters wide and 20 meters long.

Nice to see Saigon getting some love, but we expected to see at least one house in Hanoi, which is famous for its sliver-like plots of land, make the list.
