Requesting Latin translation for "garden in a house/home."

Hi, I'm working on a hypothetical project in Chicago, a city that has the motto "Urbs in Horto" or "City in a Garden."

My project is to put a "garden" into an iconic house. The garden wants to be more like a terrarium - a bubble of glass with plants and perhaps birds. I'm looking for the appropriate title, in Latin, that ideally relates to "Urbs in Horto."

I like the sound of the word "vivarium" and tentatively use the title "Vivarium domum," which I hope means "garden/terrarium in a house/home."

Can someone tell me if the Latin phrase is appropriate? Are there connotations that would be important to adjust? Please let me know.
