Vietnamese Turned A Five-Storey House Into A Vertical garden

Vietnamese turned a five-storey house into a vertical garden, located in the Dong Da district of Hanoi. This is one of the most exclusive landmarks in the Vietnamese capital: a 5-storey building completely covered by a bright green curtain. The so-called "living building" of Hanoi is the work of Prof. Dr. Hoang Nhu Tang, a former professor at the University of Civil Engineering in Hanoi and a resident of this unique building. It all started 30 years ago, in 1990, when it was one of the tallest buildings in the region, which basically meant that there was almost no shelter from the scorching sun during the summer.

As it was very uncomfortable to live in the hot season, Hoang Nhu Tang decided to plant two vines known for their ability to filter sunlight and also regulate the temperature in the building in which they grow.

These  two plants are planted on different sides of the building and guided in a personalized frame, all on the way to the top and distinguished by the fact that they can filter sunlight, and also maintain the desired temperature in the house on which they grow. After 30 years, the plants turned the house into something unreal and attract curious tourists.

Hoang decided to built the frame on the outside of the building and this frame consists of wooden battens, iron wire and plastic cables. The creepers completely covered the house for 8–9 years. At first it was very difficult to ensure that the plants rushed upwards and encircled the building to the roof. But now Hoang cuts lianas only 1-2 times a month.

“Many people says that such plants attract mosquitoes. But no. Creepers are a kind of protective curtain. Thanks to them, the air in the house is very cool and fresh, ”


“The house is a peaceful place that helps people live in harmony with nature in this cramped urban center.” Hoang says.
