From the architect. Saigon has altered beyond recognition, for us, it is hard to call a development, it is, actually, a sequence of destructions: a destruction of culture, architecture values… and especially, our beautiful memories of Saigon.

Saigon house, is a space dedicated to the old Saigon-Gia Dinh, typically “Van Duong” Palace, an architecture masterpiece of a Saigonese, Vuong Hong Sen; however, it has been undermined by human stupidity.

Saigon house, moreover, is our love to Saigon’s alleys, which are romantic with its rain and sunshine.
