Instead of the typical tile roof, a house in southern Ben Tre Province features four different rooms under four concrete barrel vault ceilings.
The 430-square-meter house enjoys a cool and pleasant climate, surrounded by coconut trees and situated next to Ben Tre’s Ba Lai River.
The owner wished to construct an open-plan house with relaxing river views.
The architect team used a barrel vault design to enhance the overall aesthetic and help the home stand out.
To ensure all rooms have a river view, most of the ground floor is empty; the space is separated from the second floor by a three meter high wall. This height allows the view to remain unobstructed by the nipa trees in front, while also making the function rooms feel more spacious.
The ground floor’s vacant space is used as a common living space, accommodating family meetings as needed. However, three sides of the ground floor are planted with trees, ensuring privacy.
The house boasts four bamboo-lined concrete vaults of varying sizes. The small arch is 2.3 meters high, while the large arch is 3.3 meters high. The vaults are arranged adjacent to each other, making the space more opulent and unique.
The barrel vault ceiling is heat resistant, allowing inhabitants to enjoy cooler airflow. The bamboo cork pattern is maintained on the concrete surface to add a rustic, simple, and environmentally friendly feel to the home.
The second floor is divided into three bedrooms and one common room at the center.
The rooms have large sliding glass doors that allow for good ventilation and full access to natural light. The arched shape ceiling also makes the room appear larger.
The highest dome is in the living room space on the second floor, where glass is installed from top to bottom to form a transparent wall that connects the inside and outside of the house.
The common living space, which includes the kitchen, dining room, and living room, is regarded as the heart of the home.
The architect used the gray of concrete as the main color inside the house, evoking a rustic, simple appeal and a quiet, peaceful space.
The interior is designed in a minimalistic style with wood as the main material. All rooms have a front view of Ba Lai River, erasing the boundaries between home and habitat.
The house was completed after 1.5 years of construction. The owner didn’t disclose the price.
