Residential Architecture: Gia Lai House by Vo Trong Nghia Architects: “..The site is 7 m wide and 40 m deep.. the corridor [is not] a simple and boring path but..a continuous and sequential space which becomes Living space, Dining space and also outside Living space, changing its width and height as people step into the house..For the wall of this corridor, we stacked 4m-length granite stones made in Gia Lai city as a reflector of the various top-light. The louvers on the top light are simulated carefully to cut the direct sunlight. This top light and louver also save energy by keeping the natural ventilation for this house..” Ample glazing, natural light, ventilation, interior courtyard, textural and contextual sensibility..
