House on Rue D’Alsace, France

From series “Unique living houses”
In Paris, the amazing house with a green facade can be seen on the Rue d’Alsace. The building was designed by the world famous designer and architect Patrick Blanc. This talented architect is the developer of the concept of vertical green walls. His works adorn many famous architectural structures and concert halls in the world, including Taipei Concert Hall.

Travellers visiting Provence could see the bridge decorated with live plants. However, the biggest Blanc’s Wall is located in Paris. The area of ​​the facade of the house on the Rue d’Alsace is 15 000 square feet. It’s completely covered with showy ornamental plants. It is important to note that the project of Patrick Blanc brings not only aesthetic, but also invaluable environmental burden.

Quite often, there is no place for arrangement of parks and gardens in modern cities. Vertical gardening architectural structures can significantly improve the environment. Each project of Patrick Blanc is unique. In whatever city he is creating an open air botanical garden, he always uses only plants that are typical for the region. This greatly facilitates caring for green facades and makes them look the most natural way. Flower houses of Patrick Blanc have another important feature. Plants serve as natural blinds for the house and protect it from the sun, so even buildings without air conditioning always feature pleasant coolness. Next - Floral House in Cordoba
