Text description provided by the architects. The house is located in a small narrow neighborhood in Vinh City, a middle part of Vietnam. The four sides of the land are surrounded by other houses. The entrance of land is a long narrow  cul-de-sac with an area of 2x10 and the final part is a folding shape with an area of 4x12m. Architects were asked to design a small house for a middle-aged couple and a daughter.

The entrance was arranged as a courtyard, connecting directly with the inside of the house. The basement was seen as a garden inside the house, totally opening to the sky and gardens. Trees and the lights are mixed together by the long narrow garden in the center of the land.

The closed spaces are located in the second and third floor. All of the rooms are arranged to be opened to the long narrow garden. At these points, the owners could connect with trees, rain, natural light which change regularly. Natural and human are symbiotic elements at this narrow land. The lives of owners are more interesting with the long narrow garden.
