■ About the project
A villa-style resort hotel located in Vinh Phuc, an hour away from Hanoi by car, the capital of Vietnam. The design was performed combining the design method of modifying the shape of the building by computer analysis and Vietnamese traditional design method without relying only on mechanical equipment such as air conditioning and functional materials. As a result, while reducing the environmental load both at the time of construction and operation, we realize a comfortable space that matches the local climate.
The entire building is recessed, thereby analyzing the direction and time of the shadow. We chose the shape and orientation with low heat load from this analysis and decided the design. In addition, I adopted the design method of the roof of the wooden with how to make the wooden fitting transmitted to the field which can be opened completely and the big space. This ensures the ventilation of the entire building by awakening gravity.
