A natural shade of green


Great natural green design right? Where do you get one of these?

Here’s a little message from the original post:

Green Screen house, Saitama | Japan

Incorporating passive design principles, ’Green Screen House’ by Japanese firm Hideo Kumaki Architect Office, is located in Saitama, Japan. The house features a large green wall that is supported by the building’s curving facade. A spattering of natural light filters through the leaves into the outdoor space below, while the screen also helps to shade the building’s interior during the summer months. Wanting to reflect the site’s former presence as a field used to supply food, and also as a beautiful rose garden, nature played a big role in the landscape and design.
