Have you found your dream house yet? If not you’ll probably find it in 25 Verde, a unique residential building in Torino, Italy, designed by architect Luciano Pia.
It’s structure is made out of steel, with its columns shaped like tree trunks. The building includes 63 residential units that are covered in larch wood shingles. The architect’s idea was to create a space that combines the interior design with its exterior aesthetic, making an easy and smooth transition from the inside to the outside.
Its green walls and huge plant pots create the illusion of a big tree-house, and the concept of “green” is carried through the entire building. Every loft is unique and has its own decoration. Their wooden balconies have all kinds of different plants and trees and the top floor has its own roof green garden, while the court garden has 50 trees planted in it. This eco-friendly building is not just an architectural jewel but also helps reducing air and noise pollution.
