Airy Thatched Vietnamese Coffee Shop is Made From Salvaged Wood and Local Materials

recently transformed a giant stockpile of scrap wood into Salvaged Ring, an airy and spacious coffee shop located in the countryside of Nha Trang. The client and owner, who had worked as a local carpenter, provided the wood to the architects in hopes of “giving another life" to the salvaged materials . In addition to scrap wood, the finished structure was also built with locally sourced rocks, coconut leaves, and other materials to help the building blend in with the local village architecture.
