The spiralling stone house in Vietnam by architect Vo Trong Nghia has grass on its roof and an oval courtyard at its center. The two-storey Stone House is constructed from locally quarried stone blocks that are stacked up in an alternating grid to give a brickwork pattern to the walls. Dark timber frames surround the windows and stand out against the muted grey color of the stone. Circulating flow runs around the courtyard and continues to the green roof, connecting all places in the house. This courtyard and green roof compose a sequential garden, which creates a rich relationship between inside and outside of the house.

The central courtyard contains both a tree and a pool of water, intended to naturally cool the surrounding rooms.
