Designed by Park+Associates Architects, the Greja House looks like a white translucent box from outside. The translucent glass is used to create a permeable skin that not only dissolves the boundary between inside and outside but also brings filtered daylight while maintaining a degree of privacy. This seamless fluidity is also extended vertically by connecting all floors with a beautiful central spiral staircase that is carefully positioned above a water feature which is carefully designed to be the main focal point for this house. Besides the water flow under stairs, huge living wall is also an eye-catching feature of the house, which cleverly blurred the boundary between outside and inside, making the house a living garden.

1. Rainy Pot
Do interior plants dream about raindrops? That’s what Korean designer Jeong Seungbin from DailyLife Lab thought, as it’s the nature’s intended way for plants to receive their water dose, so he created this supercute Rainy Pot. This clever and nice planter consists of a little pot and a cloud above it, which works as watering system.
You just need to open the lid on top of the cloud and pour about 80 ml. of fresh water for your plant, and after that you can enjoy seeing the “rain” falling in your now probably happier flowers. Also, the pot has a little plug on the bottom that you can pull to let go overflowing water. Simple and functional!
