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.
