This Garden Design Idea Will Help the Relaxation Process in the House

House is the most appropriate place to rest when you have been tired all day outside. To create a relaxed and beautiful home atmosphere, green open space is needed for the oxygen supply to be fulfilled. Now, the garden is outside the house or on the terrace and can also be presented inside the house. Here are some types of gardens in the house that you can apply.

Large Bonsai Japanese Garden at Hidden Cove Residence, Seattle 

This classic Japanese-themed garden is inside a house in Hidden Cove Residence, built in 2018. Designed by Stuart Silk Architects and Land Morphology as its landscape architects, the house near Lake Washington and the Cascade Mountains in Seattle is perfect for planting vegetation as a garden decorator. This garden is arranged with 3 natural elements: stones, water, and identical plants, bringing tranquility. The area is divided into two, wet and dry, separated by running water, which symbolizes the flow of water from the mountain to the sea.

Stuart Silk Architects then elaborated his design with the client's hobby as a bonsai collector. Thus, the garden in their house also acts as a "bonsai gallery" that they have been collecting since twenty years ago. To get to this park, residents must pass through a covered walkway with wooden slats connecting the house's pavilion with the garden. The beautiful atmosphere can be felt inside the house with windows directly facing the garden.

Minimalist Inner Garden in Da Nang, Vietnam

If the vacant space in the house is limited, this minimalist garden designed by NAW Studio may be a solution. In addition, the role of the garden is essential for dwellings that occupy humid and high-temperature areas, such as in the Da Nang area, Vietnam, so the presence of an inner garden will make the residence healthier and more comfortable.

In this house, the inner garden plays a role in separating the living room and dining area. On the right and left sides of the garden are pebbles and plants suitable for living in the tropics such as the monstera type and ferns. The park in this area gets sunlight from the window next to the gray sofa.

A medium-sized tree also adorns the dining area. This tree gets sunlight from a skylight placed directly on it. The ceiling is higher than other areas to adjust the tree's height. Although it has a minimalist concept, the function of the space designed according to the needs of residents is also a concentration in this residence. Even more so with the presence of the garden as a new color so as not to be monotonous.

Vertical Garden at Mexico Residence

Unlike the design of the previous gardens, this time, it is a vertical garden designed by Paul Cremox Studio in a "Casa CorMAnca" house in Mexico. This vertical garden is made on one of the walls of the building with a total of more than 4000 plants that can absorb 187 kg of CO2 per year. So that this vegetation is not only greenery but also controls the ambient humidity.

The walls in this area are suitable for use as a vertical garden because there is an open void so that sunlight and natural air can enter and help the plant growth process. With maximum care, a vertical garden is suitable to be applied to houses that do not have vacant land as a growing medium for plants

The vertical garden is made on a wall connecting the lower and upper floors. Residents of the house can enjoy this garden from many sides. Although applying this type of garden makes the walls in the house look more lively, it can also help create a healthy home.
