Palm leaves and bamboo poles allow it to blend into the verdant surrounding in the northern province of Hoa Binh.


The design is inspired by the stilt houses of the Muong people in Hoa Binh. It is built with materials abundant in the area – boulders, bamboo poles and palm leaves.


There’s a fish pond in the front yard.


The ground floor of 70 square meters uses bamboo shades instead of walls. The kitchen and the living room are both on this floor.


The second floor of 50 square meters has glass walls. Palm leaves as the roof keep the house cool even during the hottest summer days.
