Forest condominium is ecosystem of 150 trees, 60+ apartments

• Kirsten Dirksen -

With 150 trees sprouting across 5 floors of terraces, balconies, and roof gardens, apartment complex "25 Verde" rises like a giant treehouse, a forest-building ecosystem combining geothermal energy, water reuse, and natural cooling.

The 63-unit building's design continues the arboreal theme, with wooden shingles and steel supports that look like tree trunks. In addition to cleaning the air around the building, the trees dampen noise pollution, provide shade, and help regulate the building's temperature.
