Botanical artist Makoto Azuma  recently teamed up with Naruse-Inokuma Architects  to design a beautiful bathroom  that is overflowing with leafy green foliage! The temporary space was installed at Tokyo’s House Vision Expo , and it consists of clear glass floors, green walls covered in leaves, and contrasting clean white fixtures. Literally translated, its name gokujo no heya means “room of exquisiteness.”
Makoto Azuma  and Naruse-Inokuma Architects  worked with window manufacturer YPP AP  and toilet maker TOTO  to create the conceptual bathroom. They sought to envision what a bathroom might look like if they devoted all their resources to that one single space, seeing as it is so often a neglected space. Their final work certainly pays off, as its one of the most incredible interior spaces we’ve ever seen.
