See How This Row House Became The Best On The Block, With The Use Of One Simple Material


When Landmak Architecture were tasked with renovating a red brick row house in Vietnam, they decided to stand out from the rest, by surrounding the home with a skin of white concrete blocks. By covering the home with the blocks, it not only stands out from the rest of the row houses, but also provides some added benefits.

The main benefits are the additional privacy for the home owners, while still allowing light and air to pass through.


The concrete blocks also provide a decorative artistic element to the home.


Behind the concrete blocks on the lower level, are spaces for private gardens, that benefit from the rain and sun, that penetrate through the blocks.
