House in Nagoya by Suppose Design Office

Japanese architects Suppose Design Office have completed a residence in Nagoya, Japan, featuring a room dedicated to plants.

The house, situated on a narrow plot surrounded by neighbouring houses, accommodates the client’s desire for a vibrant garden by including a landscaped “garden room” bordering the main living space.

The architects aimed to treat the rooms and garden in the same way.

Objects associated with interiors, such as paintings, appear in the garden areas while rock and flowerbeds overlap into the living spaces.

The designers hope that the constantly changing internal gardens will continually alter the appearance of the home.

 

Here’s some text from Suppose:

House in Nagoya

This Nagoya home features rooms designed for plants.

This home is built on a small, narrow plot surrounded by other houses, making the location less than ideal.

Responding to the client’s desire to have a vibrant garden we suggested a design featuring a room for plants, a “garden room” in other words.

Essentially, in this home the garden, which usually exists in the so-called exterior, is incorporated into the interior as landscaping to surround the tenant’s living space.

It was our intention to treat rooms and gardens as equivalent, and make the relationship between inside and out closer, by creating a design featuring this garden-like room so that things normally decorating a room such as art, books, and furnishings would in a way almost be thrust into an exterior space.

Rather than a design that begins to grow stale as soon as it is completed, through this design featuring the constantly changing and vibrant “garden room” we hope that the tenants daily lives will be richer than before.

Using this design as a starting point, we hope that words such as garden and landscape that had only been used for exteriors can begin to take on new and varied meanings, bringing vibrant and beautiful scenery into the interior of homes as well, and make architectural aesthetics more and more diverse.
