Japanese architect Ryue Nishizawa, in Tokyo, Japan, has recently completed his latest project: 'House & Garden'.
It's a series of stacked concrete floor slabs bordered with transparent railings and curtains. This four-story dwelling is enclosed with walls of household plants growing within pots. Generous balconies and terraces push the main living space from the street. These outdoor areas are filled with greenery, making the home seem more like a vertical garden.
The architect has also opted to use curtains on both the interior and exterior of the house to provide privacy and divide up the living space.
