Mian Farm Cottage is a lush getaway from city life with an on-site farm

The home seems to float in its environment and is sheltered by existing trees and bushes. The massive windows give inhabitants the perfect view of the nearby Ba Vi mountain.

The steel frame also lowered costs over a concrete building. Much of the finishing was completed using a local material called laterite.
