Suppose Design Office is a firm known for its edgy architectural flavor, and this amazing house design stays true to that signature style. These innovative architects have made a mark by blurring the lines between indoors and out. The house is situated on a narrow urban plot in a densely populated part of Nagoya, Japan, and a garden element was sorely lacking. The home’s central point of interest – a lush garden inside the house – makes its way into living spaces to bring a bit of the outdoors into traditionally utilitarian rooms like the kitchen, bathroom and dining. But just to mix things up a bit, the architects have also taken traditionally “indoor” objects like framed artwork, and juxtaposed them against the natural growth within their “outdoor” context. After you get past the earthy element of this amazing inside garden, the opposite comes into effect: simple, chic, contemporary lines and a minimalist interior that brings attention to the home’s architectural elements, such as the open-to-above stairway/tree room; skylights and windows that naturally illuminate interiors; and peek-a-boo interior windows that offer views into other parts of the house. Talk about turning tradition on its head! This Japanese architecture firm gets full points for this future-forward amazing design. Suppose Design Office
