We are young Vietnamese and Italian architects, with the intention of opening an architecture start-up in Vietnam. In October 2016, we returned to Hanoi to find a leasing office space. Surveying around Hanoi, we found out that a lot of balcony here are unused, probably because of dust, noise and burglary prevention problem of the urban area. Citizens hardly communicate - interact with the external environment, with surrounding neighborhood. We call those balconies are dead spaces. Being aware of the above mentioned, our team planned to rent a downtown house with the balconies in order to awake such spaces up by architectural solutions which create friendly – multifunctional open spaces. Solution:The steel girder-tree system works as a new look for the house in order to create double space for the balcony area.
