The Yin & Yang located in the German countryside was designed by Penda’s Design studio. The unique home design has a vegetable, herb and fruit garden integrated right into the design. The modern home design has two main areas that are beautifully connected with a green roof. The areas of the home design are intertwined with one half for living and the other half for working. The two roofs surround the garden, which channels rainwater to the ground where it is then stored and reused on dry days to help irrigate the plants. The owners wanted to be able to grow their own food, and this home design provides a good opportunity to do that. The interiors of this modern home design have a Scandinavian and Japanese influence. The modern home design looks somewhat like a cabin building with large windows that bring plenty of light in, with the inside fully clad with light-colored wood, and the furniture inside made of the same wood, too. The rooms in this home design are uncluttered to give a more harmonious feel with only the necessary furniture and lights, and nothing else. This home design is in the Japanese or Japandi style. Some of the windows in the home design overlook the surrounding woods, and other windows look at the green roof, giving this modern home design a feeling of being in the countryside.
