The Red Roof by TAA Design has won the Dezeen Awards 2020 architecture project of the year. The house in Vietnam “invents a new typology, which addresses issues we face in the world today, where the urban is spilling into the rural,” said judge Sally Mackereth.

Announced at the Dezeen Awards 2020 architecture show, this private home located in a small Vietnamese village won the prestigious architecture project of the year award, as well as being named rural house of the year.

There were 1,455 entries for the architecture categories at this year’s Dezeen Awards, which is sponsored by AllermuirV1LSAHem and Grohe. Of these, 64 were shortlisted by our jury of 25 leading figures from the world of architecture.

The winners of the interiors categories will be announced on 24 November and the design winners will be unveiled on 25 November from 4:00pm-5:00pm GMT.

The Red Roof by TAA Design also won in the rural house of the year category

Architecture studio TAA Design wanted to create a new kind of rural home that creates a closed cycle of growth, harvest and consumption.

The stepped roof section allows for the growth of vegetables, which are shared with the local community. The lower levels of the house are a series of courtyards used as gardens, spaces for communal activities and playgrounds for children.

This project is located in Kim Loc Hamlet in Vietnam

Sally Mackereth, founder of London-based Studio Mackereth, told Dezeen that this project “embodies the spirit of design in 2020.”

“Perhaps it’s no wonder, given the situation we find ourselves in, that we were seduced by a project with nature at its heart.”

The judges were impressed by this project with “nature at its heart”

Mackereth was joined by Issa DiabatéSun DayongMariam Kamara and Alexandra Hagen on the architecture jury, which virtually met at the beginning of November.

The jury chose this project for its “humble gesture that has a very powerful reach” and said that small projects like this one “show that great design can be made available to ordinary people”.
