An aerial view of Casa FM
The structure as it sits in the landscape.
Casa FM's flat profile provides a natural home for a living roof.
The linear layout of Casa FM is much like a railroad apartment. All of the rooms lead towards the living room and its spectacular view.
Casa FM's rectangular form sits perched on the edge of a scenic valley.

Bricks were assembled in a pattern to allow ventilation on the second story.
ODDO Architects designed a contemporary home for a family of four on a narrow, 4 meter by 16 meter plot of land in the dense city of Hanoi, Vietnam.

The home's shell of timber and corten steel will develop a natural patina over time.
Dawnsknoll’s exterior sidings are cement panels and Resysta wood. The house’s front gate and garage are made from recycled wood.
The sleeping quarters take advantage of their location at the end of the wings.  They are private spaces with unobstructed views.
Approached from above, the home blends into the landscape thanks to an expansive green roof that's set on SOPREMA elastomeric waterproofing membrane. In winter, the house is disguised under a blanket of snow.
The covered parking pad is supported by an exposed concrete volume with (unseen) built-in storage. The concrete also provides protection against water runoff from the mountain.
Glazed walls allow the interior living areas to be seamlessly connected to the outdoors.
"The wood establishes a very emphatic and directional rhythm that orders the project," says Eduardo Cadaval, one of the firm’s founders.
By creating lookouts in three different directions, residents are able to celebrate the home's unique natural setting no matter which room they are in.
The green roof makes the house look as if it’s camouflaged within its forest surroundings.
While the house was painted black to help it blend in with the landscape, the shrub-covered roof is the more prominent part of the overall design due to the verdant green surroundings.
The walls of the volumes are slightly extended to create sheltered outdoor decks.
Upcycled wood—sourced from fallen trees near the site—was used as part of the shrub-covered green roof.
Concrete was chosen as the primary material because of its high structural performance, low-maintenance, and how well it bridges the slope of the mountainous site.

The upper volume—where the garage, kitchen, service areas, two bathrooms, and a patio are located—is a half-submerged body of stone set within the upper section of the slope.
An exterior staircases rises along a courtyard-facing wall on one of the volumes, and leads up to a roof terrace that faces a mountain to the east.
The volumes that contain the living room and a guest bedroom were designed with roof terraces, and green roofs cover four of the other volumes.
The elegant retreat combines contemplative spaces with a sense of drama.
A break in the concrete facade reveals the front entrance, which is marked by a thin steel canopy and two chimneys.

The concrete platforms are set on large black columns, and cantilever over the driveway. Underneath the house is a workshop and parking area.
