Different ‘concrete blocks’ across three floors form the basic core of this multi-generational family house even as terrazzo brings a touch of vintage Vietnamese charm to this contemporary residence.
Black has been cleverly used throughout starting from the pivoting front door to the garage and the relaxing bedrooms – life at this feels both relaxing and energizing at the same time.
On the lower level it is the double-height living area that steals the show with kitchen and dining on one side and an elegant sitting area on the other. Litecrete precast concrete panels and wooden ceiling and partitions offer ample textural contrast in a modern home that is both cheerful and polished.
Spatially the three different structures of the house contain three specialized areas with the edifice in the foreground housing the living area kitchen and other public spaces. One of the two rear structures hosts the master bedroom suite with the other containing the kids’ bedroom. An undulating roofscape puts the final touches on a truly mesmerizing lakeside home.
