HANG KHAY HOUSE
Located in central Hanoi’s Old Quarter, nearby the famous Hoan Kiem Lake, the project was a very old damaged historical building, built about 100 years ago.
The unique situation can give outstanding features such as the incredible view on the iconic lake or the proximity of the bustling life of this central premium district.
However, this project suffered from some inconvenience such as long building with lack of day-lighting and natural ventilation in the center of project.
The refurbishment and renovation of this project was the opportunity to repair these weak points, in order to design a totally new luxury contemporary apartment with outstanding view, full of light, in the middle of the Old Quarter. In the project, the central transparent staircase can give the day lighting and ventilation, like a well of light and located just above the kitchen where its efficiency is optimized. In order to let the light penetrating deeply into the apartment, we have installed glazing partition in all around the bathroom, so even when taking a shower, people can feel the exterior view on the trees of Hoan Kiem Lake. Of course the main living spaces are located nearby large big bay, where residents can open shutter to benefit of the unique view. Finally on the top, we have private terrace as an extension of the bedroom.
This apartment captures the light and makes it magical, luxurious and contributes to the beauty of this place.
