Urban Treehouse from 150 Trees

If you belong to a nature lover living in a city typical apartment building, you’d better learn what this Italian architect did to fix his urban landscape. The Italian architect by the name of Luciano Pia has really a beautiful vision for how people and nature can live together even in a cityscape.

Actually Pia has designed 25 Verde, an apartment complex in Turin, Italy. The building was completed in 2012 and it is located at Via Chabrera 25 in Turin. Such apartment building is an extraordinary 5-story resident, mixing lush trees and steel girders that let their dwellers to feel like they live in a giant urban tree-house.

The interesting thing about this apartment is that every step in the building’s design was taken with natural integration as its concept. Its terraces are made real organic and asymmetric shape. This kind of design will allow potted trees to spring out from the building at random intervals.

While in the courtyard, ther are ponds to provide the dwellers with a refreshing place to relax in the summer. And the amazing thing is that there are 150 deciduous trees which surely allow light to filter into the building during the darker months where they also lose their trees during the winter.
