Japanese architects Suppose Design Office created a home in Nagoya, Japan, featuring a room dedicated to plants.
Not all of us are going to be able to have a home with a large outside garden space. With urban living being more crowded land is becoming more valuable. The solution is to integrate the garden inside your home
I can hear some of you say "I don't fancy going around to use the bathroom". Don't be put off. You can now buy Smart Glass. With the press of a button, the electrical switchable glass changes from transparent to translucent, providing privacy at the turn of a switch.
The more urban our lifestyle the bigger the need for a connection to nature. Using lush green plants and tactile stones inside makes it possible to bring a vibrant and beautiful scenery into the interior of our homes and make architectural aesthetics more and more diverse.
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” the family will never grow bored of it.
