Nature–scape architecture.

We designed nature–scape architecture “architectural hill”, to harmonize with context of surrounding mountain and to satisfy the owner’s requirement “living in nature”. To maximize the area of green garden, all the exterior spaces of this house are covered with green plants.

There are various leveled garden, forecourt garden, inner court garden, stair garden, water fall garden, roof garden and all the vertical gardens are circulated each other continuously. Consequently, we buried all the inside spaces of this house in the green nature.

I just like it so much. Obviously, not cheap but great fun, think it relates well to the spectacular site! Could see loads of them linked together with elevated walkways.
