House like garden

House like garden Marc Koehler

If you are thinking that adding solar panels, designing windows to circulate natural air and hanging few plants completes a green house then wait, Dutch architects Marc Koehler have given entirely new meaning to green house. True to its name, walls of this house are covered with green plants. Architects have provided place in walls where you can grow live and fresh flower or fruit plants. The house is very minimalistic and modern in design. The front sliding doors give special view of the street. Large windows with clear glass are useful to bring sun light in to the house. The bedroom, bathroom and studio are located on the ground floor, while the first floor remains open for daily stay, cooking and dining. What’s your opinion on this true Green House?
