Designed by TonTon-Group, 21 House is located in a new urban centre of Thanh Hóa province, which is a very sparsely populated area in Vietnam.
The concept of the design was for a young family with their parents, and they wanted to have a new house of their own: “The open space inside but close space outside”.

The house has three factors: natural lighting, ventilation and open space inside; on the other hand, the house faces the West, that would be very hot in summer day. One of the elements the architects had to take into account was that the clients want to sleep in a room where they can see green leaves when they wake up every morning.

The clients did not want their house like thousands of other houses in Vietnam; therefore, TonTon-Group created the house with two main voids and connecting to each other the other spaces around it to create the special views. Besides, the staircase and corridors were designed to be not a simple and boring path but a continuous and sequential space which becomes a living space.
