Jumpstart Your Day: An Urban Tree House

150 trees shield the houses and its occupants from noise and pollution

Shares

We're used to seeing homes surrounded by nature and spaces that incorporate earth colors like green and brown. While tree houses aren't new to us as well, we can't help but admire this one-of-a-kind five-storey structure in Italy. Designed by architect Luciano Pia, the apartment complex is built around 150 lush trees with steel girders. See more photos below.

The apartment is like a balance of nature—it gives owners the benefits of being surrounded by lush foliage while keeping the convenience of city life within reach.

The trees shade the houses from the heat of the sun while helping reduce pollution and improve air quality in the city.

Aside from the trees within the property, there are also large potted trees placed by terraces.

The apartment also has a pond in the courtyard—perfect if you want some quiet time and do meditation.

The terrace/balcony gives the owners extra space for get-togethers or simply an extra nook when one wants to read a book or two.
