While most city landscapes try to incorporate trees, most of them are still considered concrete jungles. An apartment building in Turin, Italy is trying something innovative by incorporating trees and shrubs in the building design to reduce air and noise pollution for its residents.
The urban treehouse was designed by Luciano Pia and is named ’25 Verde’. The 5-storey building houses 63 units which all have a beautiful patio with carefully selected plants and shrubs.
This urban treehouse in Turin, Italy was designed to give its residents clean air and reduce traffic noise.
The building contains approximately 150 trees and shrubs which filter about 200,000 liters of carbon dioxide per hour.
While providing clean air, the thick vegetation also helps to shelter its residents from city noise.
Another advantage is that the trees also reduce the ambient temperature by providing shady areas during the summer.
There is lush vegetation everywhere which makes it feel like you’re walking in a park.
This project design showcases just how much attention was given to ensure a perfect mix of foliage.
The exterior also contains tree “cutouts” to to give it a unique treehouse look.
These residents are living their childhood dreams of living in a real treehouse even as adults.
If there was a building like this in my city, I would move there in a second. Please share this urban treehouse with your friends and family.
