Air and Noise Pollution Resistant Urban Treehouse Protecting Residents

Designed by Luciano Pia, Located in Turin, Italy, the facade also features silhouetted metal trees that foster the look and feel of a magnificent tree house.

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.

There are 150 trees scattered along the outside of the residential building, and they absorb nearly 200,000 liters of carbon dioxide an hour. So, the lush greenery is not only aesthetically pleasing, but its natural absorption helps to eliminate harmful pollutants (such as car exhaust) as well as disruptive outside noise. Its presence also benefits the inside of the building, too. The plants’ full leaves in the spring and summer months mean that they help to block out the harsh sun. When they’re leafless in the winter, however, they bring in much-needed light to warm up the building.
