The Wallpaper* magazine of the UK launches the awards, drawing hundreds of entries worldwide. It aims to honour construction sites that have served to lift the spirits of the communities in which they are located. “Bat Trang House” by local architect Vo Trong Nghia is named in the new private house category.

The house is situated in Bat Trang pottery village on the outskirts of Hanoi, an area renowned for its ceramics production.

Vietnamese architect Vo Trong Nghia originally designed the house for an affluent artisanal family that produces high-quality ceramic products.

The ceramic cloak protects the house from the sun during the summer and from the harsh wind in the winter, with the holes ensuring that the house still enjoys plenty of natural light.

Architect Vo Trong Nghia hopes that the personality and heritage of Bat Trang craft village is evident in the site’s architecture. In an effort to do this, he decided to wrap the property in a wall made of perforated red clay ceramic tiles that he commissioned to be produced in the village.
