Hanoi Ancient House (Heritage House) is divided into two major blocks, with a square yard in the middle on the ground floor and a tiny balcony on the first floor connecting them. The yard is located in the center of the building to help regulate the temperature and give sunlight and cool breezes. For the owner's enjoyment and leisure, small plants and flower pots can be placed on the balcony above.

The street-facing room on the bottom floor is used for selling items, while the living room on the second floor is used to receive guests and honor the ancestor. The bedroom is located behind the living room and is connected to it by a balcony. All of the behind-the-scenes space on the ground floor is used for production activities, followed by the kitchen and bathroom.
