Unlike ordinary café, “Chidori - coffee in bed” offers semi-private bunk beds as well as beverages. Their new flagship store is inserted into an old apartment building in the center of Ho Chi Minh City, facing to one of the most popular boulvard. The original structure was a typical tube house with narrow and deep space. To take advantage of the condition and connect to the urban context, we took inspiration from the alleys called “Hem” that are spread around the area, where new and old culture are merged together. “Hem” in this project is scaled into an extremely tall 3-stories split, inviting visitors inside the alley to explore and find their home for a short while.
