House With Plants-Protected Exterior in Brussels by Samyn and Partners
Have you ever seen plant facade design? We are going to review a very unusual and beautiful project by Samyn and Partners. First of all, it was desided to maintain the existing one story house on the ground level. The renovation provided structure for the entry, office and kitchen for the residence, and the living room and stairway extend to the rest of the building. The house presents curved and vegetalised facades that are very private and closed to the neighbours to the north, the east and the south. In contrast, the west facade is is fully glassed to provide natural lighting. The architects worked in collaboration with botanist Patrick Blanc and the facade is equipped with all necessary systems for plants life.
