Russian-based Snegiri Architects has designed a modern home with a sloping green roof, that’s also surrounded by a forest.
Titled the ‘HillHouse’, the design of the home includes a live “carpet” of plants, like stonecrop and wild camomile.
The green roof slopes from the rear of the home, down to the ground at the front, with most windows and rooms oriented to get as much sun as possible.
Light wood accents complement the surrounding nature, and at the same time provide a contrasting element to the dark wood siding featured on the rest of the home.
The home is also equipped with energy-saving windows, a ventilation system with air recuperation, and is completely winterized.
The wood elements continue inside and are showcased on the ceiling, the doors, and the stairs, while the bathroom interior is a bold statement with black walls and a white bathtub.
