Anh House by S+Na. – Sanuki + Nishizawa architects
This house, designed for a thirty-years-old-women and her family, is built on the plot of 4m wide and 21m deep in Ho Chi Minh City, which is very typical for urban tube houses in Vietnam. The main request from the client is to realize the bright and open space filled with natural light and greenery.
Tube house, the most typical housing style in Vietnam, itself has a critical difficulty in getting enough natural light and ventilation firstly because there’s no opening on the two long boundary sidewalls and secondly because Vietnamese people tend to have lots of fixed partition walls for separating many bedrooms. Therefore, the main theme of this house is to explore the possibility of a new lifestyle in Vietnam, in which that such dark and humid space need to be improved drastically into a bright and open one.

Twin: A Bench with Social Character
Rekalidis created the bench to “evoke the icon of the scale, a symbol of fairness and equality.” When it’s in its original TWIN configuration, the bench must be balanced between those sitting on it, emphasizing cooperation and partnership. The structural core of the bench is right where the seat and the stand join, further accentuated by the contrasting colors of the wood. It’s like a well-designed version of a seesaw!
