Green Screen House

The best type of design is that one which is both functional and aesthetically pleasing and the greatest designers manage to implement both of these features. Saitama, Japan based Hideo Kumaki Architect Office designed this amazing house with a green screen and created a harmonious blend of nature with architecture. The green screen was designed in order to protect the rooms from the sun and also to create a cozy outdoor dining area, right under the curtain of leaves. The actual temperature difference measured between the inside and outside is 10 degrees, so the architects managed to create a natural shield between the two areas. Taking a look at the interior, you will see delicate lines and minimalist use colors and materials, giving the impression of a clean and neat space.

  7. Janice Yeagle says:

    Did this and ended up with hundreds of birds deciding to roost in my screen. What a mess! Never again.

  8. Jeff says:

    Just use any kind of vine plant that is native to your location. Go ahead and try to grow any variety of vine that`s close to your graded area For the heck of it.

    A vine local to your area would be best but you could also look at things like grape vines if your climate allows them. Needs to be thick enough to be an effective screen but if it is too thick it may block too much light and become a roosting place for small birds. If you are ok with the bit of mess, the birds can add to the atmosphere.
