Please give comments about the front view of my house. I am not satisfied with it but don't know how to improve. Thanks all

It needs a statement feature. Is this how it looks in the streetscape or are there other tall buildings beside it? If it stands alone I would simplify the facade and concentrate on the details. There seems to be a lot going on. I would lose the curved balcony. Concentrate on the stairs on the bottom being your curved feature and lose the additional curve on that balcony if possible. Make the entry a feature and simplify the rest.

Actually, my house is between the two houses with similar size. The width dimension of the house is just 6 meters; hence I find it hard to have beautiful design for facade. Anyway, I agree with you about get rid of the two curve balconies. Thank for your advice

I agree with removing the curved elements and introduce some textures.

Can you hang planter boxes over the railings with flowering and trailing plants to soften and add interest?

Vietnam has some of the finest modernist residential architecture found anywhere in the world.

I like deco's idea of the planter boxes, they soften all the hard angles.

Can I be really picky? I have spent a lot of time working with a great interior designer and she has taught me a lot about the importance of details. The second storey balcony clashes with the window. I think you need to look at the detail in that junction. I would also play around with wrapping the yellow colour to the underside of the 3rd floor balcony and 2nd floor balcony to make it appear as one complete object and not just a stick on splash of colour, similar to the first example from Aja.

@ Dytecture: Yes, I removed the curve balcony
@ Isaillard: I agree with you about the clashes of window and second storey balcony. Can you give some recommendation ? Thanks

vinhnqls,

Are you actually going with yellow and turquoise????

I prefer your original colour scheme plus the addition of wood.

Aja,

I keep the original white scheme with the addition of wood.

Do you think two colors is enough?

Perhaps, add a bit of black and another colour in addition to the original scheme plus the wood.

6 meters is 20' and it's 4 stories?

Quite impressive!!

For the benefit of those Houzzers unfamiliar with the cutting edge architecture in Viet Nam, here is a magnificent home with a few interior shots of a remarkable home in HoChiMinh City.

The homes have super sleek, clean contemporary lines and a host of raw materials.

Residences feature various courtyard gardens throughout in order for the homeowner to be able to retreat into his/her own private nature infused spaces.

The exterior is surrounded by a tall concrete wall with a metal gate, and what lies within is a peaceful and clear space of clutter and noise that surrounds the city.
