Interior of Kyoto home by 07Beach

20 Nature-Loving Homes Where Biophilia Thrives

3 of 26

A skylight illuminates this house in Kyoto designed by architect Joe Chikamori of 07Beach. Since the compact site and programming left little room for a backyard garden, the living area was developed as an interior courtyard situated around an indoor ficus tree. The house also features plenty of Hinoki wood, which is soft to walk on and has good heat insulation properties.
