A transparent house in Hanoi's Long Bien District offers homeowners a view of Duong River with a touch of nature.
Located on the riverbank, the 64-meter-square house stands out in the neighborhood thanks to its transparency and outdoor plants. Initially, homeowners wanted to build a house without hurting the garden on the plot, so they decided to use glass wall to erase the boundaries between the inside and outside.

The plants act as the outer skin for the house. Thanks to the river wind and the free sliding wall system, the house always has optimal air circulation.
