Located in the city of Fukuyama, this house made of wood and concrete offers us an idea of Japanese gardens in the heart of the living space. Realized by the local company UID Architects , this residence is in a densely populated area, which has excluded the possibility of creating a small outdoor green space.
Japanese interior gardens for a zen and relaxed atmosphere
The UID team therefore had the idea of devoting a small area of the house to an indoor garden. Once this idea came to the world, the architects developed it by organizing the whole house around this green zone; so that we can enjoy the zen atmosphere it establishes in every room of the house. The exterior of the house and simple and modern. Looking closely at the pictures of the space around the building, we see that there is even no sidewalk: so this Japanese house is sandwiched between several buildings!
Japanese interior gardens: plants and decoration
But it is inside the house that we find its most interesting accessory: its green space! Probably inspired small gardens Japanese called tsubo-niwa, which covered no more than 3.3 square meters in the past, this natural area is home to plants and trees and is complemented by decoration with small pebbles.
Japanese gardens compact and natural interior
The fresh and natural color of this space softens the concrete walls and completes the authentic beauty of the wooden elements. The ceiling above this green area of the house has a window that allows light to fall directly onto the plants. And, thanks to the glass showcases, which surround the inner garden on all sides, this soft and pleasant light can penetrate into all rooms of the building.
The window that encloses the mini Zen garden and makes it visible from every corner of the house
It is customary to say that, whatever their size, Japanese gardens have the capacity to make any space, interior or exterior, more harmonious and more peaceful. This design house by UID Architects and its green space seem to confirm this opinion. If you dream of a peaceful and modern house, consider the possibility of adorning it with a little gem like this mini Zen garden !
