25 Verde Urban Treehouse Apartment Building

Whether it’s weeds on your lawn, poison ivy, or a Venus flytrap clamping onto your tongue (Google it), plants can be a pain in the ass sometimes. But then there are plants that do wonders for us. 25 Verde, a 5-story apartment building in Turin, Italy, features those plants. The good kind.

The credit goes to designer Luciano Pia, who recognized the health and aesthetic benefits of having 150 trees surrounding your living quarters. All that foliage helps to absorb close to 200,000 liters of carbon dioxide an hour, and that sounds like a lot, so… we’re on-board. Getting all sciencey on you, the abundance of trees also apparently yields a microclimate inside the building, keeping temperature extremes to a minimum. With just 63 units available here, we’re guessing they’re in high demand. [Via]
