Would you live in an arboreal house?
Global warming is real, in spite of what some politicians wants us to believe. But there’s a bright side to this story and it lies on the hands pioneer scientists, engineers, architects, designers, people with environmental consciousness and other visionaries that go above and beyond to raise awareness about these issues.
When the latest design trends, architecture and environmental consciousness come together the results can be quite impressive. And that’s the case of arboreal houses, homes that integrate the surrounding environment and turn it into a powerful design element.
These houses are built preserving most of the natural surroundings and trying to enhance the natural landscapes of the area. Here are 10 arboreal houses that will take your breath away.
