Kientruc O Embrace The Void With The D House
Architects Prove Less Is More With Their Colonial Villa Renovation
Given a 70-year-old colonial villa to renovate in District 3, Kientruc O decided to embrace the void, as they stripped the building back to its essential components – keeping the tiled roof and eaves, for example, while opening up the central space to expose the internal structure.
As a project on behalf of a friend, the architects succeeded in creating for their companion a sculptural oasis with smooth, sweeping lines, right in the heart of the city.
Take a look at their work below.
