The 135-meter-square tube house is located in a small alley of the province's Vinh Town. Its homeowners, a local man and his mother, wanted to have a comfortable living space with a minimalist style at an affordable cost. Architects decided to introduce the rural spirit to the urban dwelling by incorporating a garden at the front, the middle, and on the second floor.
