VTV24: Bat Trang house designed by Vo Trong Nghia Architects (VTN Architects) is the winner of the Best New Private House category in the Wallpaper* Design Awards 2021
Vo Trong Nghia created this modern take on the traditional Vietnamese shophouse near Hanoi for an affluent artisanal family that produces high-quality ceramic products. Following the local vernacular, Bat Trang House combines commercial and residential spaces. The raised ground and lower ground floors serve as showrooms for the family to display and sell their products. Four additional private levels with a kitchen, living room, five bedrooms and several airy gardens sit above. The top floor includes a dedicated room for the family altar and an open-air swimming pool bordered by trees and plants. Vo wanted the personality and heritage of the craft village (Bat Trang, some 15km Hanoi, is known for its ceramics production) to be evident in the architecture, so he wrapped the property in a wall made of perforated red clay ceramic tiles that he commissioned in the village. This ceramic cloak protects the house the sun in the summer and the wind in the winter, while the holes ensure that the house still gets plenty of natural light. Large gaps allow for the trees and plants the elevated gardens to burst through the terracotta-coloured façade.
