Indoor gardening can be tricky, especially when one lives in a relatively small apartment with limited access to natural light, but 'The House with Plants' lives up to its name despite the potential barriers. The micro-home in Japan makes use of clever design quirks to make the most of its relatively small balcony space, helping to make it conducive to urban gardening.
The key to The House with Plants is in the texture of its ceiling. The angled ceiling is covered with a white, reflective vinyl material. Not only does this reflective the sunlight coming through the windows onto the plants inside, but it also reflects the image of those plants on the ceiling itself. This in turns provides an inverted view of the plants that the residents can enjoy from anywhere inside.
