Japanese Garden in Minami-Azabu

location: Minami-Azabu, Minato-ku, Tokyo

use: house

completion: 12.2005

This Japanese garden was planned in a house built under the theme of “a resort in the city center”. The design concept is based on this theme.

(1) The creation of an oasis by water and greenery

(2) The creation of endurance in the flow of time by incorporating Japanese traditional taste into modern design

(3) By setting up a stage that changes the appearance of day and night, we aimed to express a rich scene

The stones standing on a geometric plane adds more depth to the space, and the sound of flowing water and the sound of bamboo grass touching the wind draws the hustle and bustle of the city and invites our five senses into an unusual space. When it is lit up at night, a Japanese garden emerges in the dark and gives a dreamy look.
