Da Nang is one of Vietnam's cities with an average air temperature and high humidity. Therefore, houses or buildings pay attention to circulation so that the air quality in the room is maintained properly. This is also one of NAW Studio's focuses in designing a residence for their clients.

With limited land, NAW Studio tried its best to design the circulation of the house called Flow House by utilizing many openings and inserting several inner gardens. The role of the inner garden is very important for dwellings that occupy humid areas and have high temperatures, plus narrow land. The existence of an inner garden will make the residence healthier and more comfortable.

Flow House was built by applying a minimalist concept thanks to the limited area and the owner's wishes. Minimalism is defined by NAW Studio and its clients as utilizing everything that exists and is limited by creating maximum potential space. So in designing this residence, all space programs are arranged consistently to balance occupant activities, space functions, and environmental conditions.

Three areas for the inner garden are spread out and equipped with skylights and three vents that protrude into the house. In addition to maximizing circulation, the inner garden, planted with several green plants, is a cooling space while creating its aesthetic.

The focus of NAW Studio which prioritize circulation between building elements, lighting, and open inner gardens is an indicator of a minimalist building. Furthermore, not only the use of furniture and decoration elements is minimal, but the function of the space designed according to the needs of residents is also a concentration in minimalist housing.
