The design studio Vo Trong Nghia from Ho Chi Minh has completed a beautiful project of Stacking Green House. Its width is only 4 meters, but it includes four full floors. This architecture is typical for Saigon, where the home is situated. Chaos reigns in the most populous city everywhere.

The second level is occupied by a living room and a kitchen. The third floor includes bedroom and bathroom, the last level is designated for office. On the roof there is a terrace to have a rest on the open air.
