The house resides in the 7th district of Saigon, the biggest district of the city. MM+ Architects tried to re-engage an old architectural recipe in a contemporary installation. In Saigon Vietnam there are several installations were the entrance is a folding shutter. This is mostly due to the fact that the building contains both a house and a shop. It is called a shophouse and it is all over the city.

The architects, having a very narrow space to work, they used some older techniques to provide a polished outcome. In general, the installation can hold any kind of audience equally well. Furthermore, the building is very comfortable for the one that uses it. It offers anything a house can give in a very elegant way. The result is impressive. Enjoy.
