Vietnamese architecture firm 23o5 studio has built a narrow house that can be adaptable to comfortable lifestyle in Vietnam. Called Tien House, the 95-square-metre house was designed for a young man, living with his mother.

The house looks like a tubular structure, while its interiors are filled with a plenty of daylight and flexible spaces. 

"The son asks for a room that can be opened to the maximum, with clear views towards the front where he can create and make a small studio attached to his living space," said 23o5 studio. 

"His mother asked us for a large space for the kitchen - the host regularly welcomed the guests at the weekend, although the house is only 4 meters wide."

The goal of the project was to create a continuous space throughout the house, not separated by walls or stairs.
