A Journal exploring the value of plants and flowers

25 Verde

25 Verde is a modern treehouse in the middle of the Italian city of Turin. The architect Luciano Pia integrated 150 trees into the 63 residential units which act as a filter for air and noise pollution from the surrounding street. The trees will also change with the seasons, offering beautiful colours all year round. The aim of the project was to create an energy efficient building with natural  heating and cooling systems which also harvest rainwater to water the plants.
