Homes With Lush Indoor Trees That Add To The Peace
As many people continue to work from home amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the comfort and design of our homes have become a significant part of daily life.
Integrating more giant trees into the home, in addition to standard houseplants, can help make interiors feel more fresh and peaceful.
Yukawa Design Lab’s Margin House In Japan
Kohei Yukawa, a Japanese architect, designed Margin House for himself and his family, arranging the space around a central atrium that houses a tall tree.
The indoor tree area was inspired by traditional Japanese doma rooms, which were constructed of compressed earth and served as a transition zone between indoors and outdoors.
The tree here pays homage to the traditional connection to the outdoors while also emphasising the room’s height.

Keiji Ashizawa Design And Norm Architects Designed The Kinuta Terrace In Japan.
Trees need not be significant to provide a breath of fresh air in a home. A smaller tree in the living room of this Tokyo apartment has twisted roots that give it the appearance of an oversized bonsai tree.
Its wooden trunk complements the flat’s oakwood-clad walls and contrasts with the pale grey concrete walls. The entire apartment was designed around a central courtyard to replicate the feeling of living in a garden home for its owners.
H & P Architects’ AgriNesture In Vietnam
The AgriNesture house in Mao Khe, Vietnam, has a plantable roof that the owners can use to grow food. This connection to nature continues inside the house, where a small tree is planted in a cement planter on the top floor and illuminated by a skylight.
Along with the tree, the house is adorned with numerous hanging plants in pots; the green leaves contrast beautifully with the house’s red brick walls.
Carlo Ratti And Italo Rota’s The Greenery, Italy
The Greenery, a farmhouse extension outside Parma, was designed by Italian architects Carlo Ratti and Italo Rota to “blur the boundaries between natural and artificial.”
A 10-meter-tall ficus tree grows through the extension’s open-plan living space and kitchen.
As the twentieth-century Italian architect, Carlo Scarpa once said, “‘When given a choice between a tree and a house, choose the tree.'” Ratti observed.
Not Architects Studio’s Weather House In Japan
Weather House is located on a corner lot in Tokyo and was designed by Not Architects Studio, who took advantage of the house’s layout by completely enclosing two sides in metal mesh.
Terraces serve as hybrid indoor-outdoor spaces in this setting and are adorned with plants and small trees. The mesh will eventually be completely covered in climbing plants, effectively completing the transformation.
