Garden and House by Ryue Nishizawa

garden house 1

This Tokyo five-storey townhouse by Japanese architect Ryue Nishizawa is fronted by a stack of gardens. 

Located in a dense commercial district, the building provides a combined home and workplace for two writers. Gardens are interspersed with rooms on each of the four floors of the building, creating a screen of plants that mask the facade from the eyes of passing strangers. Glazed walls beyond protect the interior from the elements.
