Step Inside The Industrial Penthouse With A Classic Touch

Full screen

Vietnam is renowned for its colonial style buildings boasting eclectic French charm, but every now and then something different comes along.

Located up north in Vietnam’s Hung Yen province is a quirky penthouse designed by ihouse studio. It’s hard to put a finger on the exact influence of this home but it’s this very point that gives the space an air of uniqueness. What’s noticeable is the eco credentials which have been seamlessly integrated into the architecture both on the rooftop and the bathroom’s vertical gardens.

Moving into the lounge and entertainment area, guests are greeted with floor to ceiling windows taking full advantage of views of the Red River. Elsewhere it’s a combination of raw brick and raw concrete teamed with industrial furniture pieces including a vintage steamer trunk which doubles as a coffee table and an alcohol trolley featuring all the bells and whistles.

Stepping into the master bedroom will reveal uninterrupted views of the sunrise as well as a five panel revolving door which acts as a divider between the garden and bedroom.

The combination of the design elements by ihouse allows this one-of-a-kind penthouse to make the most of its prime location in an often cramped country.
