Vietnamese American writer Nguyen Qui Duc returned to his native Vietnam in 2006. A year later, he bought land in the mountains of Tam Dao and began work on a modern house of glass and stone. The New York Times shows us the spare and open home that the homeowner likens to a New York City loft cantilevered over a cliff...

The traditional wooden guesthouse on the property.

There's a simplicity in the house — it is only one level and the homeowner used glass and stone so that he could employ local artisans for the construction. Check out the story of its unique construction:
A Retreat Outside of Hanoi
and the slideshow.
