Tropical House Design with Interior Courtyard

The 7×7 House is a tropical living space put together by IZ Architects, for a single female homeowner. The home design was influenced by its location in Danang, a central coastal city of Vietnam where the climate has dramatic changes between sunny and rain seasons and sees tropical storms each year. The team were asked to create a flexible linking space to reflect the way of life here, where local people lead an open and friendly existence influenced by Buddhism. The lead architect looked at small rural houses around the coastal countryside of Vietnam and was inspired by their humble and zen living spaces.
