Architecture has the ability to bring different cultures together, and, in much of the same way, it can also bridge the gap between modernity and our nostalgic past. For its latest project, titled “Di Linh Homestay,” CTA has decided to channel these notions in angular form, creating a space that transcends the boundaries of traditional eastern design.
Towering over the foliage-strewn mountain pass of Vietnam’s Di Linh plateau, the Di Linh Homestay brings a cubic, high-contrast dwelling to the area’s countryside. Instead of taking on the appearance of surrounding communities and areas, this unique home relies on more contemporary design, integrating aspects of the country’s cultural heritage with the cutting-edge principles of modern architecture. Inside, denizens pass their time in the home’s modestly-furnished living area, kitchen, and bedrooms, which have been designed for a more efficient and sustainable lifestyle. Natural light illuminates the homestay’s wide, open-ended areas, courtesy of its length-running windows, while an aesthetically-enticing unison of iron, concrete, and transparent glass help to give the space a more euphoric flare.
