限られた投資額で最大限の効果を狙うため、遮光とプライバシーのため必要となるカーテンを、仕上げ材として徹底的に用いることとした。これに加え照明、最低限の家具(2段ベッドは既存のもの)、建具と設備などを含め、総工費は約100米ドル / m²に抑えられている。



近年、観光客の急増するベトナムでは、先進国を模した小綺麗なシティホテルが乱立している。一見クリーンなそれらは、紋切型の空間と画一的な体験を提供している。〈Hostel anettai〉では、ベトナムの強烈な光と影を空間に内包し、南国にふさわしい宿泊体験を提供することを目指した。(山田貴仁、犬童伸浩)

A villa-converted hostel that uses curtains thoroughly to contain the light and shadow of the tropical country

“Hostel anettai” is a renovation project from a typical French-colonial-style villa in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Teaming with other professionals, the architects took up a holistic role in the project; not only as designers, but also as investors, working on design supervision, signage, public relations, and actual operation – which was the core of the comprehensive brand strategy.

Within the budget constraints, curtains were opted and installed to create a finished surface. It also adds layers of privacy and controls the amount of light. Consequently the construction cost was minimized to as little as 100 USD per sqm – including lighting, doors, equipment, and minimum furniture except for the existing bunk beds.

The 500 sqm of curtain is treated as an entity that defines the space by determining the amount of light entering than as a conventionally worn out element around openings. The curtains act as an arbitrator between the light source and the interior. It filters, reflects, refracts and texturizes light while also determining the space. In principle, two layers of translucent curtains are installed to draw spatial boundaries from the beds to the outer periphery of rooms, creating differently-lit environments in between. The fabric is translucent when light sources fall on it, but otherwise turns opaque in its absence. It softly filters and blurs the shape of sunlight in the daytime, while creating an illusionary ambience by bouncing light off in the night.

On the contrary, the balcony is filled with tropical plants and beaming sunlight, complementing the richly-shadowed interior spaces. Stainless steel cable were installed in two directions, weaving imaginary walls and ceilings draping the geometry. The creepers and hanging plants will then grow around it to form a green veil over time.

Due to the booming demand for tourism in Vietnam, it has been an easy choice to superficially follow styles of other developed countries. This tendency results in conventional spatial experiences that could be generated anywhere else in the world, and ultimately deteriorates the hospitality industry. “Hostel anettai” is an attempt to pursue alternative experiences that suit tropical regions, by embracing the play of intensive light and shadow of the region.
