This building rests on a small and narrow site surrounded by other houses. The architects responding to the client’s desire to have a vibrant garden suggested a design featuring a room for plants, an interior “garden room”.
The garden room is incorporated into the interior as a landscape surrounding the tenant’s living space. It was the architects’ intention to treat rooms and gardens as equivalent, and make the relationship between the inside and the outside closer. This was achieved by designing a garden-like room that accommodates things normally used for decorating a room such as art, books, and furnishings into an ‘exterior’ space.
The garden room is a constantly changing and vibrant “garden room” aiming to add richness to tenants’ lives.
Using this design as a starting point, the architects hope that words such as garden and landscape that had only been used for exteriors will take on a new and varied meaning, bringing vibrant and beautiful scenery into the interior of homes as well, and make architectural aesthetics more and more diverse.
