Million Dollar House “I would bring a cozy, luxurious, timeless living space for the homeowners with all of my passion, knowledge and experience” 8 months ago This customer got to know Thai Cong company through ads on a flight but at that time he hadn't bought this villa after a while, once he owned the villa he would love to find an interior designer for his house which he would consider as his “lifetime” house Actually, he didn't remember the exact name of the company.
He just got impressed by the advertising images and knew that he truly loved Thai Cong's style After that He's asked all of his friends about a glassy guy who has an impressive designing style whether they know who that one is Finally he found us and called me to make an appointment He shared with me that he's truly fulfilled when he could finally found what he's been looking for The special thing about this house is that it located in Bason which is the center of Saigon right next to the Saigon river we can even walk to Park Hyatt Hotel from here It's central and it's extra expensive Compare this location to locations in London, New York, .
it's sure much more cheaper cause with this house's price range we can't even buy an apartment in New York of course the value of the property will always goes with its location And Saigon is a developing civilized city with a 10M people population This district that district is still in Saigon but this is District 1, a huge one a number one location in Saigon it's extremely valuable And due to the cost, this kind of townhouse is much more common than the others there will be no space garden and the owner accepted that cause he had other huge houses in suburb or in Dalat there's even a 10.
000m² land that's why for this central home he considered it as a place to come back after a long working day I want to give him a harmonious, peaceful and private atmosphere at his own home which will come from the classy materials, meticulous construction or elegant space division 6 months ago He also asked us design the landscape I don't like the door position Let's come in we will fix all of this since we started to carry out this construction we know that it's challenging they've already built up a house and I have to innovate it To be honest there're still architectural mistakes Because this house is in European style the interior must characterize the style today we will reconsider the house lay-out whether it's okay or not I want to replace this door with a window, similar to the opposite one if possible i don't want it to be the front door when people come here they will follow the corridor on the left to enter the living room over here, right? let's replace the front door with this window so it would be a floor-to-ceiling window First of all, we will change the entrance location there will be steps before we encounter a narrow corridor here after that we can enter the house through a terrace front door it's one of the biggest changes Thai Cong has made for the entrance create a brand new doorway so this is what we currently got? what is this? currently it's the smoking room once we get through the front door this room has a singe sofa and a window let's refer the townhouse take a look at its style we do not directly enter the house, we'll have to cross a narrow corridor Look at this terrace here currently, the steps lead directly to the terrace door and it's just not right European houses would look like that doorway here and the living room is over here no one enters the living room right away look at these living room doors you can see the front door here but i'm standing in the living room And this lay-out is not elegant at all you must cross a lobby before completely enter a house living room, dining room, kitchen or other rooms there's not a singe house in Europe that would have a living room right behind the front door okay, here is the front door and i want to cover it up and get rid of the stair and move the stair to this side and turn it into a terrace here Copy the style of the old door but narrower it would be more reasonable compare to the current design not okay at all build up a wall here cover it up break this wall and get rid of this column we will also break this stair so that we can go straight to the kitchen from here the corridor might be a little small but we have to accept that my priority will always be the entrance it's irritating to think that i'm siting here and behind me is a front door but now it's a window with blinds/ curtains it's much more elegant For example, when you have visitors you can close the door so that you can have private space from home maids passing by and that's exquisite the living room door over here will be a sliding one i will also put a double door here and another sliding door leading to the dining room if the visitors come, we'll close the door the guest will have no ideas about this room until there's a party and the homeowner will open the door and come in I'm like a “House Doctor” there're still many mistake Unreasonable, unnecessary if we put this column here, it would expand the terrace so this window and the niches are unnecessary and it's such a waste not to make use of this space there's no point for these windows and balconies as well the window on the back is unneeded and we lost the space for the dining room i don't understand what these niches are for this is the living room there's a couch here and here and another one over there it will be just right to cover up this window after covering it we will have a wall here i don't think this one necessary but the owner wants to keep it so we will satisfy our customer and suggest making a floor-to-ceiling window the other side is other's house we can't do anything about it one big window for this room is enough there's no need for another one but let keep it because the customer wanted to this house is worth million dollar and look at the fence boring Get rid of it if possible it will be the first house in Vietnam with this style beautiful beautiful okay so finish the papers after that we will draw the ground plan then handle it to Huy and Vu they will ask for customer's opinion and we will see or else we have to make a backup plan what is the width of this door? 120cm the front door is 140cm why don't we make this one 140 too? it must be equal actually it's equal my mistake Okay then i don't want a big and a small one now this stair you go first? If you fall i will hold you? do we keep this window? cover it up? Okay! how about the stair the owner of this house is an elder they will need an elevator in a near future if the elevator is not installed beforehand, it would be troublesome later that's why you have to put effort in planning for the future who will live here? how old is he? so that we can make things right there're some unchangeable details such as: column grid or stair basically we can't touch them, can't fix them But the thing is the acreage is not big enough to install elevator into this position that's why get rid of the stair is a must which side will be the exit of the elevator? over here? so in front of me will be one the stair took too much space that's why to narrow it is a must in order to install an elevator Thai Cong had a risky idea that is to change the acreage of the stair and where it locates in the first place it must be a frame according to Vietnam structure style when you open the front door, it's a living room but it's not the case when it comes to European style because the European found it inconvenient that's why when you enter a house, there should be a lobby or a small corridor where you can see the elevator or stair and can enter the bathroom, the kitchen and from the stair you can go up to the above floors the stair will be separated from the living room or bedroom the lobby will be this big, right? over here over here and enter the bathroom from here in general, this is the lobby and we have 2 doors one is to enter the bedroom one leads straight into the bathroom after finished working he'll come to bedroom cross another door over here behind the wall, which will be built later over here, will be a changing room a dress room when we turn here, it will be a bathroom with a big lavabo big lavabo a bath tub here we could look over the terrace after that we have a door here a double door we will put a shower room here with another door leading to the toilet there's also a sauna here and cover this window actually i think this space is too small for both shower room and bathroom i would recommend our customers to select only one too tiny well sauna over here toilet shower room a sliding door here and a bath tub here an extremely exquisite bathroom a changing room here a door to come across the bed will be here and we have a kind-of suite here for guest to stay in and watch TV put here a couch, a TV cabinet and they can watch TV from here this room will be excellent a glamorous bedroom i'm listening i just received a call from the project manager they can't approve the new front door design Huy, the front door design can't be approved is that so? didn't they tell us that 90% chances are that we can but not a singe house there can be changed Cause that front door is an overall design of their project it would be impossible if our customer is the only one that change the design Thai Cong has already designed that way they confirmed with us a high probability and that's why we carried out that way let me discuss with the homeowner to be honest, i'm worried and confused with this news and i also need to talk with Thai Cong to find another way to handle the case they don't allow us to change the design of the front door the one that you wanted to change from a wooden into an aluminum one with glasses Vinhomes project manager told us so to change the outer structure of the villa in this area is merely impossible they don't let us get rid of the door the stair as well? cause it would affect the front design now we have to find another way it affects the structure and there's no permission that's why Thai Cong has come up with a new solution Vu? call Huy, i have a new idea i think we could smash this wall and make a door here we change all the doorway the use is not changed but the look is not up to Thai Cong's standard guests will come up here the door here will be changed into a window as well guests can enter here and this will turned into a lobby the cupboard which i intended to put here at first now i'll put it here after covering the window from the lobby you can see the cupboard we could put a glass here and an ottoman here and the most important thing is this front door if they let us break this wall, things will be alright the wall does not affect the outer structure so it might be acceptable and the new style seems nice too i think it doable after papers completion let me inform our customer in the worst case which they do not let us implement this style neither there's no way i can design the living room there will only be a lobby and move the living room upstair that would decrease the space of the bedroom downstair there will be the kitchen and dining room left the lobby has an elevator but still too big can't go directly to the living room and i have to find another solution it would change the layout completely cause i finished them already it's too late to make a lounge for the house good i have to make a side door for the house Because the Vinhomes council is strict it's easy for you to change whatever you want inside but outer design is a different story hello how's thing going? you can order the kitchen to make apple pie with these the meeting with 3D team is about to take place i'll attend the meeting now.
Please continue and i'll be right back after i finished hello how's it going? now we will select the interiors for the Vinhomes villa while creating 3D images so that our customer might have a closer look at how their home would turn out the furnitures in those images, our customer don't have to go and find them somewhere else or similar ones since everything in those images is our company products it's convenient and can guarantee Thai Cong's design standard the requested schedule is quite tight since they also have to prepare for their son's wedding and that create some pressure for us 3 months ago i'm standing in front of the Bason construction and the villa is being renovated we've already built up the walls today i will check up once again and see if there's anything else we have to fix it would nearly touch the floor it would be a lobby once we got to the 1st floor it's likely a shared space with a sofa, coffee table therefore, the bedroom is a little small since the lobby took quite a lot of space at the time we complete the construction there were so many teams there was a time when it reached hundred people it's hard to deal with the implementation and to work harmoniously with other teams is even harder Get rid of this extra part this one we must keep we have to panel this sooner or later 30 days before completion Most of the furnitures that the owner has ordered is bulky we ordered them from Italy, France that's why it took some time to produce as well as delivering to Vietnam the house has many floors so the most optimal method is to hire a crane Most of floor and space is paneled that's why during the construction we have to protect everything by rubber mousse and foam 10 days before completion actually it's not a villa for me it's a townhouse villa must have garden space and might take thousand square meters a newly married couple that will cook for themselves they would like an open space with kitchen counter, dining table and living room but this is an elder couple it's a different lifestyle and they have home maids therefore, the furnitures must match their owner and even the outer look of the house this is completely copper not iron coated with copper these things haven't been put in the right place, right? Not yet.
OMG there's no way we did not provide this lamp the owner bought it himself Huy? remove it it's even better to have nothing at all it does not go with the ceiling please help me if you go classic, it must be classic and modern is modern but now have a look at this it has a fragile design with all the delicate details it's break the equilibrium somehow it's like wearing jewelry you can't just wear Hermes, Chanel with fake jewelry better have nothing at all Vu? the wall lamp is a little too low with a standing lamp? yes but not too big put the bed in the middle of these 2 lamps 5 days before completion today we will install lavabos and bath tub in the master bedroom i imported these ones from Italy the details are exquisite and meticulously produced look at these beautiful handles it's copper not iron You want everything to be luxurious? you have to import it recenter the TV according to this frame please don't push this couch this couch costs more than the TV let's make some space to organize everything these things are covered so you won't know what's inside it's fragile the couch price is equal to 5 TVs 4 days before completion a little low a little low give me the ruler For Thai Cong, decoration is like a soul, a story of the room it's hard to decorate this cabinet Casual souvenirs would ruin the look he would choose decorations with uses besides looking good the materials must be suitable with the space too it must express the personality of the homeowner Nice excellent can someone hang the picture on? a blanket on the couch will make the space a little cozier at night when we reading a book or watching TV, we can cover ourself with this blanket the paintings hanging on the wall they must have a theme that goes with the homeowners the homeowner's son is studying abroad that's why he prefers black and white paintings he chose the architecture ones which is very modern that frame and this one is similar how about this one besides that, to mix the modern and the classic he would choose the picture of ancient pots to hang in the modern living space it would characterize the style that he wanted i need something here in this space, he used the cozy shades of brown according to customer's personal preferences Thai Cong has used various types of wallpaper with small differences and the pattern must be harmonious for example, the corridor he want a wallpaper that is special and impressive once the guests came in The purpose of choosing wallpaper like this he intended to put a hint of asian vibe into the European space a special harmonious contrast for a Vietnamese construction the thing that makes me happy the most is the sharing from the customers after they had been living here for a long time they shared that wherever they travel they always want to come home come back to a beautiful cozy place that makes me know how fulfilled a designer could feel to hear that we can make some one's living space much better not simply make it look nice if you want original European style I can satisfy you To understand this style, you must live there you can't just acknowledge the lifestyle through pictures when the customers come to me and choose this style, i'll consult them well it's not my style that its modern or classic it's just simple luxurious I truly love my home and I admire his passion it's a huge passion I brought out what he considered the most beautiful things for the homeowners Thai Cong and Huy are special ones their inspiration has spread everywhere even I got inspired I love this home from the first sight I just want to stay home and don't want to go anywhere else Thai Cong has my grattitude he brought new life inspirations for me as well as my home it's my happiness not just for me Home is always a place you keep wanting to come back to.
