Architecture is a long-standing profession, one that has produced the iconic landmarks we admire around the world, monuments which we revere around the world, and played a part in establishing the organisation of the cities we live in today.

Not only do they emphasize the horizontal frame visually, but also control the amount of incoming natural light.

The living room and bedrooms which are most part of the program of this house, are located on the southern part of the house to take in the view of the golf course. The horizontal openings of the architecture make full income the panoramic golf course view into the house. The composition of continuous louvers installed on the south facade to control the amount of natural light makes an even more dynamic facade.

The village is spread out along the mountain with ancient tree groups of about 60 acres,where more than 500 trees can date back more than 100 years. The traditional houses are mostly wooden structures, mainly fir and pine, using local materials to form column and tie construction. Most of the villagers are Hmong, who have preserved a great deal of ethnic culture and traditional customs. Though this village is faced with the population loss, economic backwardness, cultural decline and other common problems that most villages face, it also has its own advantages, beautiful natural landscape, unique culture and a large number of ancient and unique construction resources.
