    Spoong&Tamago has this great post on a home on a small lot in Tokyo. The building is gracefully designed to have plentiful outdoor spaces on each floor.

    Says Domus:

    Wedged between two tall buildings and invisible from the main road, the narrow Nishizawa building insists on maintaining its confidentiality via an array of plants and flower vases that screens it from the gaze of passers-by. It might easily be mistaken for some sort of mysterious vertical garden.
