Text description provided by the architects. Vietnam is a developing country, urbanization is happening fast and it is taking people away from nature. The buildings around us gradually become concrete and leave harmful effects on our own living environment. Yen Architecture hopes that through this project, people will reconnect with nature.

2 km northwest of the center of the old town of Hoi An. Bonte Cafe is located on the outskirts of town, in the area adjacent to the old town and the new residential area. With the desire to bring nature into the project, people can touch the leaves, flowers with light and wild nature. The buildings are covered with tall trees and low trees and have flowers, shrubs and some types of vines. With layers of vegetation, the heat problem is very well solved here. The trees are covered in sunlight and both provide moisture and oxygen to the air, making the environment cooler and cleaner. During the rainy season, the amount of rainwater is returned to the soil through this garden, ensuring the water and carbon cycle in nature.

The door system with the folding option can be maximized to form the roof and at the same time blur the border between inside and outside, the air circulates well, the space becomes bigger. In the middle of this open space, a cup of coffee acts as a catalyst to help people come closer to each other.

Bonte Cafe has 3 floors, with a void to connect the ground floor to level 1 – facilitating the interaction between the floors, customers can easily choose a good place to sit and enjoy their drinks. Level 3 is quieter and more isolated for working and studying. We have set up a number of tables for groups and a few English learning groups have recently chosen this space as a place to study.

Few materials have been used in this building but they are used to their true nature. We keep the color of the concrete, wood, steel and grindstone. We very much appreciate the local artisans who, although they do not have modern machines, have great minds and large hands, making the surface of the material emotional and attractive.
