A lot of private residences I see on architecture websites don’t excite me that much. They seem too sparse, too neat, too lifeless. I don’t easily see how someone could breathe and live there comfortably over many years.
When plants are brought into the interior of a house, it instantly becomes more interesting. It becomes less harsh and restrained. I even like how the randomness of plant life contrasts with the minimalist shapes and structures that are getting a lot of love right now. Despite the fact I (begrudgingly) like minimalism and ooh and aah over simple planes and smooth materials, I can’t picture myself living comfortably in a concrete and glass box. Unless maybe there are plants in said box.
This last one is too much. Just absurd, but doesn’t make the tree make it better? Even a little bit?
