Stefano Boeri, an Italian architect has conceptualized a residential building that resembles a vertical jungle. The 384ft Tall Apartment will be built in Lausanne, Switzerland and It will be the first building in the world to be covered in evergreen trees. The 36 story green tower, aptly named “La Tour des Cedres” (The Tower of Cedars) will be home to more than 100 trees, 6,000 shrubs and 18,000 plants spread over roughly 3,000 square meters of green space.

 

The plants will protect the apartments inside from harsh winds, dust, and noise pollution and will offer a more pleasant view of the city. The tower will have offices, a gym, and a panoramic restaurant on its top floor. Construction is set to begin in 2017. This is the second project of Stefano Boeri’s of its kind. Earlier in 2014, he completed Vertical Forest, two 112 meter tall towers that comprise 1,000 different species of trees.
