Only 4m wide and 17m deep this contemporary concrete and brick house rises above a busy street in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The minimalist, modern home references the traditional shop houses of the area with a blurring of private and public spaces at street level achieved by a folding shutter which also moderates shade and ventilation. A large central skylight allows light to penetrate to the inner rooms. By MM++ Architects.
