Incorporating greenery in the architecture and ultimate design of your home is a huge commitment, and its overall advantages are worth it in the long run. The exterior facade of this home is covered in lush greens, only to be broken up by entrances and horizontally placed windows. Not only is it beautiful from a visual perspective, but the sense of smell is also taken advantage of as well. Lavender, rosemary and saffron are all light scents that take over various areas of this home.
The interior is a clean offset to the intricate exterior space with a floating cantilevered staircase and mixed materials. Concrete, various woods, and sleek lines really allow the vertical garden to shine. With the exterior being so exciting, the interior opens up to a glass courtyard and a rooftop terrace to lounge, meditate and take in all of Portugal’s views. With over 4500 plants and varying species attached to this one home, it’s a viable resource for sustainability and fresh air for the city of Lisbon.
