For MIA Design Studio, one of the key requirements was to connect the different zones of the large Louvers House in order to reflect the needs of a modern Vietnamese family. At one end of the house is the bedrooms and living area, while the other end features a spa and gym. To link the different zones, the architecture firm built the space around a shared courtyard that also brings light and air into the middle of the house.

Other key features of the house include its first floor living area, which was moved up from the ground floor in order to give the best views across the park lying in front of the house. The Louvers House’s location is also an influence on the design of the large canopy, which is needed to keep the house cool from the tropical Vietnamese sun.
