Byera Hadley - Bin Than House , Ho Chi Minh City

The Binh Than House was the first project for Japanese Architect , Shunri Nishizawa when he established his practice in Vietnam , in collaboration with the renowned Vietnamese Architect , Vo Trong Nghia , a colleague from University in Tokyo.

Described by Nishizawa as an experimental house , conceived to house two families over separate levels and now home to the Architectural Practice of Nishizawa on the lower ground space , his family on the upper floors and another family on the levels between.

With references to the work of Le Corbusier , traditional Japanese and Vietnamese Architecture, the house is enveloped in tropical greenery for screening and cooling of the simply planned , yet beautifully sculptured spaces.
