Back Society » Architecture » [Photos] MIA Design Studio's Dream Office Erases Boundary Between Interior and Exterior

Located next to the Saigon River in Binh Thanh District, MIA Design Studio's office is simple, open and efficient.

The studio's glass wall brings in ample natural light, while outdoor greenery blends in with the mixture of indoor activities. There seems to be virtually no divide between the exterior and interior of the office.

“The design idea is not so special, we just try to make working space simple and convenient [to] enhance the adaptation to the surrounding landscape”, an MIA architect shared with ArchDaily.

Founded by Manh Nguyen Hoang, Steven Baeteman and Bao Bui Hoang in 2003, MIA's innovative and ecologically conscious design practices meet to generate and foster flows of space.
