This House by Vo Trong Nghia in Vietnam Makes the Most of Limited Space

Architect Vo Trong Nghia has built a spectacular and lively residence in Saigon, Vietnam on a plot that's only four meters wide and 20 meters deep. The house, which was designed for a young couple and their mother, consists of a front and back wall made of concrete planters, which can be adjusted to the height of the plants. The green house has a tropical feel to it and definitely benefits from the vast amount of natural light that illuminates the home through the plant-trimmed windows.

Saigon has the highest population density in the world, and the green facade and roof top garden that Vo Trong Nghia designed aim to shield the inhabitants from direct sunlight, street noise and pollution.
