Viewed from the air, the roof of the building is covered by 30% of cogon grass( a local grass growing wildly every corner at the countrysides of Vietnam).

The other 70% of the total area is filled with all kinds of greens: vegetables, tropical fruit trees, flowers, and Japanese grass carpets.

Chong Chong Architecture has tried to untouch the natures of the plot from the day one.
In Rainy Season, the rain water would be partly kept by the garden on the second floor, the rest would be down into greens on the ground.

In Summer, the trees around the building would fuction as a natural air conditioning as they always do.

Designing Ideas And Solutions Of Heat Proof And Tropical Storm Resistance.

1. Upstair Garden Solution.
In the recent years. We all have experienced so many floods in major cities: Saigon, Hanoi and Da nang. Dozens of solution were put on the table. However, the most effective and simpliest is always partly keep rainy water for the upstair garden before absorbing to the ground.

The upstair gardens not only keep a countable amount of rain water for the greens but also heat proofs for the whole building. This would make the house owner reduce electricity use in the house as the air-conditioner. Besides, the garden freshly ventilates the house too.

There would be more rain in our planet which is warming up in every single day. And ofcourse, the more green roof there are, the more improved our living environment will be.

2. Roof Solution.
Inspired by the traditional country houses of 3 section-house roofed with cogon grass which is totally environmental friendly, heat proof, easy to be built, reasonable price and completely cosy.

The only minus point of this cogon grass roof is not so long lasting(from 8 to 10 years). Thus we have a concrete supporting layers underneath. So the combination of cogon grass+ concrete roof shows the most effective solution in both stormy rainy season and the summer heat resistance.

The canopy and garden in front of the upstairs, the place where the owner can both enjoy reading and gardening. Perfect space for family time. The upstair garden would be also the fun place for kids and BBQ party at weekends.

“At first, I’m quite impressed” said the owner. “It brings me back to my childhood, I feel no bounderies between indoors and out, people and nature, city and countryside.”

Green roof tops, the best solution for Global Warming Scenario. The greener roofs are, the fresher environment will be.
