What’s the Garden’s New Role?
Plants in the house, which change all the time and in this way make the interior different every day. At first glance nothing unusual. But in this case it is not plants in pots, but a real garden, blending with the rooms in the house. The wish of the client is for a dynamic, lively design.
The architects from Suppose Design Office accomplished this in the Japanese city of Nagoya, the garden being turned into an integral part of the interior.
The house, built on a narrow strip of land, is surrounded by other buildings, that is why there is not much space or vegetation. The designers exchange the places of the traditional objects inside and outside, and broaden the 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”, explain their idea the people from Suppose Design Office. At the same time the stones and the flower-beds create a unique atmosphere in the rooms, cleared from superfluous furniture and accessories. The architects hope that with their project for the ever-changing, lively, garden-like room they will make the tenants’ lives complete and that they will redefine the idea of gardens: „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.
