Nghe An house intertwines with lush gardens – VnExpress International


A traditional tube house in central Nghe An Province is constructed with intertwined gardens and an outdoor staircase embracing an old avocado tree.

The 135-meter-square tube house is located in a small alley of the province’s Vinh Town. Its homeowners, a local man and his mother, wanted to have a comfortable living space with a minimalist style at an affordable cost. Architects decided to introduce the rural spirit to the urban dwelling by incorporating a garden at the front, the middle, and on the second floor.

The entrance with a front garden offers residents a space to hang out and play.

Minimalist furniture inside glass walls, which allow natural light to enter.

Architects convinced the homeowners to keep the old avocado tree present on the plot, designing the outside staircase around it.

The staircase helps connect the downstairs living area with the second floor greenery.

The middle garden connects two blocks of the house.

A window on the second floor has a garden view. The house uses traditional descending red brick roofs, connecting blocks with the gardens and making the whole structure more durable under the scorching sun of central Vietnam. Construction cost VND750 million ($32,359).
