Suppose Design Office has designed a new residential building in Kodaira-shi, Tokyo with a unique garden in front of the house. The main attraction of this design is the innovative tent over the garden, which separates the public area from the private house area. Here is some description by the architects, “As one of client’s demands, we were considering a garden in front of the house to separate the public area the private building. To create a garden semi private, which could connect outside and inside space gradually, a tent structure was used as a partition to separate the areas. The house keeps private yet it could open to the outside with a tent garden. The tent is covering the garden as if it was a roof, a wall and a fence. The sliding doors at the living room, which is placed next to the green area, can connect the two areas, the inside of the house and the outside area, as one space. The tent could offer comfortable green space and also private rooms, which could also open to the outside.”
