A new luxury residential block in Tokyo’s Jimbocho District called for a series of discreet garden and courtyard spaces that would serve as urban sanctuaries from the busy street life beyond. Water dominates the landscape language in the form of spouts, pools, water slides, and channels. A lush overlay of evergreen shrubs and flowering perennials brings the season’s delights to the garden visitor and residents. Distinctive gazebos and pergolas accent the spaces with places for sun shelter and intimate lounging.
