The North is where the indigenous culture imbued with Confucian thought, and  the traditional rituals of the  three  Confucian value was very carefully holding while the people from the Southwest are likely liberal, rustic, and not two sophisticated in ritual in everyday life, so when the city husband lived in the Southwest, those of his childhood memories came rushing back.  Desire to pass on  part of indigenous culture of the old country to his children, as well as his next generation, this house was designed in the view of  blending between Past – Current… .. and most importantly it is the blending of two cultures into one (The Northern traditional architecture  and Southwest hick emotion).

Communications of the house  is very clear  but also full of interesting and special feelings. Architects have set two bridges as transport links throughout the blocks, one bridge made of concrete, sloping  connects the master bedroom and work room at the 2nd floor,  a yellow steel bridge to connect the  Altar room  with the external garden, and its point is a blank space on the front facade. It characterizes the old tube houses of Hanoi’s ancient streets. The roof folds were gently reproduced as in “Pho Phai” paintings.

The house has four  different façades creating spaces sandwiched in between as wells of light,  giving different emotions when we stand under it  and feeling between inside and outside was completely reversed. The atriums were created to provide light and ventilation to the interior as well as taking the leading light for the space beneath it and the direct light source for the mini garden. This solution design makes humans as immersed in nature, touching the plants and flowers in any public space, even when walking  on the small bridge.
