“It will transform along the nine Vietnamese Dragons [Rivers]”

~ Remi

The Vietnamese Long River acts as a gateway to the major towns and cities within Vietnam whilst also providing locals with means of transport and trading goods.

This project took us to the fascinating rivers of Vietnam whereby we were requested to take a traditional Vietnamese long boat and reconstruct it into an engaging and dual-purpose vacation home in a series of phases. The boats primary purpose will be designed as a conventional goods vessel, and its secondary purpose will be used for vacation periods. Providing both functional and luxury elements in order to become a versatile and multi-functional space.

The sole aim of the project was to create a vessel that would breathe and transform along the Nine Dragons (rivers), highlighting the transparency of its programming.
