Archdaily has included four outstanding Vietnamese houses among 80 most beautiful ones in this world this year.

Four Vietnamese houses made the cut from 4,000 different projects published this year by the world-famous publication on architecture.

The Brick Cave and Hopper House are located in Hanoi, The Hut in Saigon, and the Long An House in the Mekong Delta province of Long An.

The website says experts evaluated houses based on four criteria - architectural design, material and construction innovation, challenging topography, and meeting client's desires.

The complete selection contains houses from other countries like Japan, Portugal and Italy that are located in a wide variety of settings and have a variety of features ranging from remote landscapes to urban infills or hi-tech automation.
