Grass Roof House by Studio PRANA

One last home, I promise. And then I will get to our top posts of 2009. I’m like a toddler whose tantrum was being allowed to run its course, I know. But that’s what I love about having my own blog.

In my last post I fortuitously came across the architecture firm Studio PRANA, while searching for images of Terunobu Fujiyoshi’s new work. A bit of digging unearthed this awesome Grass Roof House, conveniently located in Musashino, Tokyo. (That’s where my parents live and where I spent 15 years of my life! Yay!)

How awesome would it be to pick fruit from your balcony and then climb up on to your roof and eat it while lying on grass. Doesn’t sound like Tokyo to me. The next time I go back I’m going on a treasure hunt for this home.

Goya fruit, also known as bitter melon (not my favorite) growing on the balcony. And steps leasing up to the grass roof!

    I also live in Musashino, so could you tell me exactly where this place is?

    Mikhail – I don`t recognize the area. Musashino is pretty big.
