Green Roof villa
As we know, there is not so much land in Japan. This condition inspires architects to create their masterpieces in limited space. The coastal house, you see on pictures below, with a garden that is located on the roof could be a great example. The project, designed by Ciel Rouge Creation, was called Villa Ronde. This complex includes a private museum, guest house and recreation area. Access to the sea creates a magnificent view. The round shape of the complex is necessary not only for aesthetic pleasure, but it also protects from strong winds which are typical for the Japanese coast. The garden on the roof creates a feeling of unity with environment and emphasizes the naturalness of the project.
