Idee Architects Turn Traditional Farmhouse Into A Modernised Retreat
Indoor-Outdoor design makes for a unique living experience.
Idee Architects have tackled an innovative two-month-project with a nice blend of both traditional and modern architectural styles. Nestled on a bucolic citrus farm overlooking the Ba Vi Mountain range, contractors crafted an intelligent getaway for a family of twenty, just outside of Hanoi. Utilising steel and glass for the framing, the structure of the living area is slightly elevated giving way to picturesque views of the pomelo groves and farmland.
To create a harmonious relationship between the indoors and outdoors, black steel sliding doors and towering glass walls were installed to generate minimal intervention between the construct of the home, and of nature itself. Featuring indoor seating, living areas and an outside terrace, inhabitants enjoy an unhampered view of the stunning landscape, right from the confines of their home.
