The Subterranean Ground Floor Offers a Panoramic View from the Garden to the Streets

This weekend house in Tokyo was built by Elding Oscarson with the upmost respect to a preexisting garden that thrived alongside the estate. The ground floor of the home is sunked to be slightly under street level and the line of windows lining the level offer an unbroken panorama from the street to the garden and backyard. Given the offset between the ground and the ground floor, residents of the second floor are also treated to a 360-degree view of the garden. A wooded terrace rounds out the rooftop with potted greenery to offer yet another retreat from the busy city life below.
