What do you do when you decide to build a house on a tight spot from a residential area and feel the need of having privacy, but also wish for your home to look upon a little garden ? Well, that would seem challenging, given the fact that the area is pretty crowded with houses and the chosen spot completely lacks vegetation.
The team from mA-style Architects was confronted with this situation and delivered a wonderful and inspiring result when creating the Green Edge House from Japan. This lovely piece of architecture responds to each and every one of the client’s requirements: its structure consists in a main building, the house, which has floor to ceiling glass walls and is surrounded by an outer wall that seems to be floating. In between these walls stands a green area, which makes for a tiny, but chic garden. This way, the clients’ privacy is well taken care of, as the house is protected from undesired glimpses and looks upon its surrounding greenery.
