A Terraced Japanese Garden House Filled With Sculptural Art

Moments of sculptural art enrich this terraced Japanese garden house, which is located in the suburbs of Kyiv, Ukraine. Project ‘Oko House’ (which translates from Ukrainian as ‘Eye House’) is a stunning two-level private dwelling, designed and visualised by . A circular window in the main façade forms the ‘eye’ of the house, which overlooks the layered beauty spot of mature trees, shrubs and lawns. Inspired by Shōji doors, the round feature window is crossed with a grid of steel bars in place of the classic wood or bamboo latticework. However, traditional style Shōji screens have been used to compartmentalise space elsewhere in this peaceful design, whilst maintaining the link between inside and out.
