Vertical Forest: An Urban Treehouse That Protect Residents from Air and Noise Pollution

Italian architect Luciano Pia merges the best of urban landscape with natural living. A potted forest of trees and branching steel beams disguise this 5-story apartment building in Turin, Italy.

Designed by Luciano Pia, 25 Verde brings plants up off the ground in an attempt to evade Turin’s homogeneous urban scene and integrate life into the facade of the residential building.

The undulating structure creates a transition from outdoors to in, holding 150 trees that absorb close to 200,000 liters of carbon dioxide an hour.

This natural absorption brings pollution protection to its residents, helping to eliminate harmful gasses caused by cars and harsh sounds from the bustling streets outside.

The trees’ seasonal progression also creates the ideal microclimate inside the building, steadying temperature extremes during the cold and warmer months.

The plants’ full foliage block rays of sun during the summer while letting in warm light during the winter.

The building holds 63 units, each benefiting from the terraces and vegetation just beyond their windows and walls. Each species of plant has been chosen purposefully from deciduous plant life in Turin to provide the highest variety of color, foliage, and blooming.

This innovative design provides a childlike dream while also instilling real world benefits to those who live in this urban treehouse. (via Divisare)
