Architect: Guild Architects

Meet the home with a unique take on the garden. Instead of using flowers, vines and shrubs for purely aesthetic purposes, these architects integrated the garden into the design of the home. During winter, the plants provide crucial insulation. When summer rolls around, the plants shade the interior, keeping things cool.
