Tane Garden House

Tsuyoshi Tane, 2023

The Tane Garden House was designed by the Paris-based Japanese architect Tsuyoshi Tane and will be constructed using sustainable and, wherever possible, locally sourced materials and built by local craftsmen.

The house is very compact and can accommodate around 8 people. In addition to a small coffee corner, all the gardening tools are to be kept in the house. There is also a toilet with a sink for use exclusively by the volunteers. The house is also suitable as a meeting room and for workshops on the topic of gardens. A kitchen garden is being created alongside the building and will be accessible to Vitra employees.

The Tane Garden House is intended for use by the kitchen garden enthusiasts and the crew of the Oudolf Garten. Outside, there is seating and a small fountain for watering or cleaning boots and utensils. The building will have a viewing platform from which visitors can enjoy new perspectives of the Oudolf Garten, the Umbrella House and the rest of the Vitra Campus.
