Modern House Mag has featured a number of modern house designs where the goal of the architect has been to blur the line between man-made space and environment. This is usually done by opening the interior living space to the outdoors.
Now, Japanese architects Suppose Design Office has done the opposite. Their “house in Nagoya” literally brings the outdoor environment inside.
In this project Suppose had their hands tied because the lot was very small but the owner insisted on having a garden to feel connected to the earth even while they lived in the city.

In the Nagoya house plants actually have their own “rooms” and art is displayed in the “plant rooms” rather than the living space. Even more, as the plants grow, the look of the interior will continually change.
