The house was restored from 1998, and was completed in 1999 based on cooperation between Hanoi and Toulouse city (France). The structure of the house with it's building material are majorly wood. The house became national Heritage on April 16.2.2004.

Due to the trade requirement so the main door overlooks to main street. Therefore, the width is usually 2 to 6 meters.

Mezzanine for storage  or sleep so the height is not exceed 2.2 m . If you need more living space they add more storeys for the house so it is called the tubed shape house. 

The second floor is the ancestor alta and bedroom. Between inside compartments are yards with bonsai plants that make us feel close to nature. The needs of people at that time was simple so they  need not private spaces like today. For this reason  the space across from room to room is typical aspect in ancient houses in the Old town of Hanoi.
