Saigon House Building was designed and completed by Lib.A architecture studio in 2000. In 2015, we were commissioned to refurbish the interior of the building’s executive office. The small office space, measuring 43m2, consists of a reception area outside and a working area with storage inside.

Given the limited space, we designed a versatile, compact cabinet system to store various items, a minibar and a trash bin. The layers of space are created through materials with subtle lines, providing gentle separation. Despite its modest size, the office exudes an ambiance of openness and warmth, carefully crafted through the use of assorted materials such as oak veneer plywood and glass, white-painted walls, and existing stone flooring.
