House & Garden @ Tokyo

gh01

Japanese architect ryue nishizawa has recently completed ‘house & garden’, a residence in tokyo, japan. a series of stacked
concrete floor slabs bordered with transparent railings and curtains, this four-storey dwelling is enclosed with walls
of household plants growing within pots. generous balconies and terraces push the main living space from the street.
these outdoor areas are filled with greenery, making the home seem more like a vertical garden.
the architect has also opted to use curtains on both the interior and exterior of the house to provide privacy
and divide up the living space.
