Completed by Ho Khue Architects in 2019, The Kite Village House is located in Hoa Son, Hoa Khuong, Da Nang, Vietnam. The combination of local materials and the simplicity of this house allows it to blend beautifully with the surrounding countryside nature.
The total construction area of this house is 195 sq.m with a mezzanine floor and a ground floor. The ground floor consists of three different parts: two bedrooms, a kitchen with a dining area, and an outside seating area.
The area of the mezzanine floor is used as a family room. This room plays an important role to bring all family members closer. A combination of glass doors and brick walls is the partition in this house.
A visual connection between the outdoors and indoors can be established thanks to the glass doors. The perforations of the brick wall can provide good air circulation. The perforations are provided due to the wind direction of Vietnam’s climate.
Two fish ponds can be found in the site area. Cool air can enter the house to the house’s temperature thanks to these water bodies.
The construction is done by using materials that were locally produced, reducing the construction cost as well. The local workers were also hired to help the local economy. The house’s simplicity and the use of local materials allow this house to blend with its countryside nature beautifully
