Building Of The Day: Putting A Spin On The Stone House
December 10, 2012
Vo Tron Nghia is an up-and-comer. His portfolio includes several diverse projects, each taking on different formal and material expressions. His firm’s “Torus House”, a coiled stone house hidden behind a screen of greenery, is no different. The structure loops in on itself, topped by a continuous lawn of grass that along with the central oval courtyard, planted with shrubbery and trees, gives the residence an intimate exchange with nature. Compared with the exterior’s play of rough, weathered stone and verdant grasses, the inside is much more refined: nearly every surface is treated with a dark polished wood, like that of erstwhile ocean liners (at least the luxury cabins, that is).
