Moreover, the construction of the house involved high expenditure and this financial burden forced Nga to make it public to the visitors.

The inspiration

To create this exceptional house, Dang Viet Nga took cues from fairy tales. The house itself looks like a massive tree seen in the fairytales movies of Tolkien and Disney.

The house showcases plenty of natural forms and animal figures, such as, bear and the giraffe along with cobwebs and spiders that add a pinch of oddity. In addition, a specific portion of the house offers a mystifying maze like feel to it, just opposite the rectilinear.

The replica of a giant tree in the center of the house is inspired from the banyan tree whose roots slowly grasp the house. In fact, to make it look absolutely natural, the windows too are constructed in an uneven form.
