Woven Screen
In order to achieve an “open yet enclosed, public yet private” space for an office interior in Hanoi,
Vietnam, we propose a screen design with 3-dimensional concrete blocks.
Traditionally, perforated terracotta blocks have been used for building facades in Vietnam to
provide the best condition in tropical climates – blocking harsh sunlight while letting natural
breeze comes in.
The “Woven Screen” is our modern take on traditional Vietnamese perforated terracotta block
walls, to optimize the interior airflow environment and light condition, as well as to create a space
for better communication and creative working condition.
