Wooden Tokyo House Looks Like It was Built Inside a Forest

This renovation of an old two-storey wooden house in Nakano, Tokyo rocks!

It is the idea of Japanese architect Ikeda Yukie, and I am totally in lust with it. The house has tree stumps reaching from floor to ceiling, as if trees were bursting through from the ground. The building is a really original piece of architecture that is very functional at the same time.

Aesthetically, the project is amazing, and I can’t help but wonder what it might be like to live in an indoor forest on a permanent basis. I would love to try it out! Stats for Indoor Trees Trending: Older & Chilly
