Unlike most houses which are built on the entire land area, this house is set back in the front, back and sides.

The three-story house has staggered blocks to freely allow wind and light.

The front faces the southwest and so receives a lot of sunshine during the day. Architects Le Minh Quang and Nguyen Ai Thy created a shield to keep out heat while ensuring ventilation and light.
