Located in the Quảng An region of Vietnam lies the Hopper House. Architect firm AHL Architects were tasked to create a home — fusing cultural design details found in traditional Northern Vietnamese homes with contemporary configuration tactics. For instance, patios, thresholds, inner yards and roofs are but a few components typically found in age-old habitats and were since called upon to help inspire certain functionalities of the dwelling.

The Hopper House highlights clean lines and a high arching ceiling — doing well to communicate vast open spaces in between quarters. White walls and a grey-hued cement floor keeps the interior color palette neutral, while the wood-grain fixtures add a certain rustic charm locals would easily recognize. One of the domain’s key features is a pocket garden — overlooking a tree through a glass enclosure, though still exposing it to nature’s environmental elements.

In case you missed it, Tato Architects transforms a two-storey space into a seven-level living arrangement.
