The “Thang House” by Vo Trong Nghia Architects won the “Urban house of the year 2020” category. The house was built in the central city of Da Nang.

Dezeen Awards website said the house is organised into two parts: living spaces and the other spaces that have been conceived as its green lungs. The Living spaces are nourished with filtered air, diffused light and the aroma of grass and flowers that act as the green lungs. With this coexistence, the project is a successful attempt to integrate nature and renewable resources, while providing engaging communal spaces that connect back to nature.
