The designers placed the small garden adjacent to the Oh family’s small, naturally-finished home, where window slices permit a soft infusion of daylight and ensure constant views of the new garden. Sliding glass doors further ensconce the connection between the built and natural environment and send a breeze circulating throughout the house.

When living in a city lacking abundance of all things green, a simple intervention like this beautiful garden really can create the happiness that often comes with being close to nature.
